Designing Interactions with Autonomous Vehicles

In an interdisciplinary collaboration between engineering and design we are researching how autonomous vehicles can communicate to pedestrians in shared spaces, and methods of prototyping and evaluating interactions with AVs in VR.

Prototyping AV-Pedestrian Interfaces

The advent of cyber-physical systems, such as robots and autonomous vehicles, brings new challenges to the domain of human-centred development. We developed a tangible multi-display toolkit approach to support collaborative design explorations for AV-pedestrian interfaces.
