OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to quantify the impact of traffic density and verbal tasks on takeover performance in highly automated driving. BACKGROUND In highly automated vehicles, the driver has to occasionally take over vehicle control when approaching system limits. To ensure safety, the ability of the driver to regain control of the driving(More)
Increased competition between manufacturers made it necessary for them to create products that provide great experiences in order to stand out from the rest of the market. For a positive product evaluation by the user, not only usability, but also user experience plays an important role. Recent research revealed that the most common method of using(More)
Electric Vehicles (EVs) are an emerging technology and open up an exciting new space for designing in-car interfaces. This technology enhances driving experience by a strong acceleration, regenerative breaking and especially a reduced noise level. However, engine vibrations and sound transmit valuable feedback to drivers of conventional cars, e.g. signaling(More)
Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and driver information systems (DIS) do not always comply with the intended driver safety enhancement. Even if they aim to augment the driver's awareness of the surrounding environment, perceiving this information requires the occasional attention diversion from the road, which could lead to a loss of vehicle(More)
Tough competition in the automobile market makes it very important to exceed customer expectations with in-vehicle devices or applications in order to stand out in an already saturated market. Research on human-machine interaction (HMI) showed that user satisfaction is not only influenced by usability factors but also by user experience (UX). Since UX in(More)
In this paper, we want to follow up the question, how characteristics of electromobility could be represented in the interior of electric vehicles (EV). For that purpose we followed a user-centered approach to collect intuitive and implicit relationships between some descriptive characters of electromobility and real materials. In a study with 13(More)
Currently, the legal, technical and psychological regulatory framework of automated driving is being discussed by car manufacturers and researchers to guarantee its safe and smooth introduction into the traffic system. This discussion is accompanied by plenty of studies that seek to study the human side of the interaction with automation and to expose(More)
The Periscope is an interactive device supporting passengers in a car to explore the outside environment. Following an experience design process, we trigger positive emotions by addressing psychological needs: (a) The exploration of interesting places around the car addresses the need for stimulation. (b) When passing the Periscope on to others, discoveries(More)
Trust in automation is a key determinant for the adoption of automated systems and their appropriate use. Therefore, it constitutes an essential research area for the introduction of automated vehicles to road traffic. In this study, we investigated the influence of trust promoting (Trust promoted group) and trust lowering (Trust lowered group) introductory(More)
