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.

Sketching-in-Light

Sketching-in-Light is a toolkit to assist with designing and evaluating the characteristics of low resolution lighting displays as well as content variations using different materials without requiring any previous expertise in hardware prototyping.

Hybrid Media Display

This research project investigated how real-time data can be visualised in smart cities using a media architecture approach. To investigate this matter, we developed an ambient display connected to open public transport data and tested various visualisations.

Prototyping

LightBricks

LightBricks is intended to build miniature models of low-resolution media facades and pretest visual content. It helps design teams to explore media architecture, interactivity and lighting design rapidly and at low cost.
