How can shape change in the surface of the mid console communicate the transition of autonomous to manual driving and vice versa?

Year: 2019

Individual

TU/e Master Project

Autonomous cars are an emerging topic that many people are investigating. An aspect that has not yet been widely explored is how certain transitions will be materialized and visualised in semi-autonomous cars. With shape change being a potential tool for communication it will be used in this design research project to visualize the transition from autonomous to manual driving and vice versa. Co-creation sessions are used to gain insight to what is important when creating this specific shape change and eventually a final co-creation session with an expert will lead to the final concept. The outcome of this design research project will be a paper. More information will be available July 2019.
