I want to investigate “How do interfaces affect the sense of control drivers have?” by designing several concepts of scenarios in which I explain a several interfaces. These scenarios then will be proposed to users and experts through interviews and (if beneficial) questionnaires. From the data that is received new concepts will be generated and proposed. After several iterations, this will result in data that will bring me closer to the answer on the design research question. Continue reading

How do interfaces of AV’s affect the sense of control drivers have?
Driving creates a relation between the passenger and the vehicle. I am interested in seeing what these relationships are made of. I believe that both parties (the driver/passenger and the vehicle) have their own values when driving.  Is it possible to enhance these values by designing a interface that creates a certain relationship?
