Generating a Personalized UI for the Car: A User-Adaptive Rendering Architecture

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7899)


Personalized systems are gaining popularity in various mobile scenarios. In this work, we take on the challenges associated with the automotive domain and present a user-adaptive graphical renderer. By supporting a strictly model-based development processes, we meet the rigid requirements of the industry. The proposed architecture is based on the UIML standard and a novel rule-based adaptation framework.
