Setting the Stage with Metaphors for Interaction - Researching Methodological Approaches for Interaction Design of Autonomous Vehicles
Paper i proceeding, 2017

Development of autonomous vehicles is progressing. As automation levels increase, the roles of both the driver and the vehicle are changing, meaning that they need to forge a new relationship to each other as the vehicle gains more agency. We believe this requires approaches that address that relationship early in the design process. One such approach is choosing a metaphor as a guiding principle for the interaction to set the preconditions for the relationship. Another approach is early evaluation of designs between system concept prototypes and the user. The aim of this one-day workshop is to explore the use of metaphors and evaluation though enactment in the design of human-vehicle interaction. This will be done through a short concept development process, where participants are asked to reflect on the process. Outcomes will be an evolved understanding of using the design approaches, as well as identified collaboration and research needs.
