Transportation: In-Vehicle Experiences

While an autonomous vehicle can be compartmentalized down to its ability to transport a person from point A to point B safely, this is not the only important aspect of the vehicle. How should a user communicate with the autonomous vehicle? What is the best design for the vehicle’s interior and exterior? How do SAE Level 3 and Level 4 autonomous vehicles and riders share the driving tasks? These questions switch the focus from autonomous vehicle technology and center it on the human.

The lab’s human-centered approach to autonomous vehicle design examines the user experience and interactions with an autonomous vehicle from approaching, the external human-machine interface, to riding in the vehicle, the internal human-machine interface. Our projects help uncover the needs of users and assist in the creation of autonomous vehicle interaction design best practices.
