Exploring User Needs in Automobiles
Paper in proceeding, 2012

This study aims to present an alternative method for capturing the user's needs and experiences of in-vehicle human machine interfaces. For this purpose, a set of workshops and a repertory grid technique was employed. The combination was tested with a sample of ten participants. Preliminary results indicate that the combination of the workshop and the repertory grid methods have a strong potential to effectively capture users' needs as well as highlight important factors that affect the users' perceptions regarding in-vehicle interactions.
