As a User Experience Designer at Garmin International, Amy Mihalevich has worked for the Automotive OEM UX team for the last three years. Amy is the lead HMI Designer for the future Mercedes-Benz in-dash navigation solution. She coordinates with Project Management, leads teams of collaborative designers, and works closely with both Systems Engineers as well as directly with the client to refine project requirements. "It is my goal to promote the value of User Experience Design by setting a good example of what design thinking can do."
As a User Experience Researcher at Garmin International, Stephen Hassard, PhD works in the Automotive OEM UX team. Stephen is focused on making automotive electronics as safe and as fun as possible to use while driving. "I obsess over details - details aren't part of the design, they are the design. Without a keen understanding of the user's needs and wants, as assessed by complementary qualitative and quantitative research methods, we're doomed to live in a world of monotony and tedium."
