Designs Created by Fast Students Unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas

Prof. George Paravantes (FMCA) and Dr. Dennis L. Kappen (FAST) proudly unveiled the results of the 2022 ARROW HMI - Humber Industrial Design competition at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, January 2023!

The Human Machine Interface (HMI) designs were created by the graduating Class of 2022 Bachelor of Industrial Design program from the collaborative course between the 4th year industrial design and interaction design students. These designs simulated the dashboard experience for the consumer and were integrated into the ARROW, Canada’s First Zero Emissions Concept Vehicle, the premise being to showcase Canadian design and manufacturing talent on the CES world stage.

For the unveiling, the clients integrated interactive simulations on the dashboard, from all student team submissions, that created a unique in-car experience for the driver and passenger from the time of ingress to the point of egress from the vehicle, providing driver and passenger engagement.

Ahmed Sagarwala, Associate Dean of FMCS was also present at the unveiling of the ARROW concept vehicle at the renowned Las Vegas Convention Center.

The Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA) of Canada launched the first, original, full-build, zero-emission concept vehicle named Project Arrow. An all-Canadian effort, it will be designed, engineered, and built through the joint efforts of our world-class automotive supply sector and post-secondary institutions.
