This workshop aims to bring a diverse group of researchers and practitioners together to discuss human-vehicle interaction in automated vehicles. Its focus is on research and designs that have been done in areas where humans interact directly or indirectly with automated vehicles.

Automated driving is one of the most discussed disruptive technologies of this decade.
It promises to increase drivers’ safety and comfort, improve traffic flow, and lower fuel consumption. This has a significant impact on our everyday life and mobility behavior. Beyond the passengers of the vehicle, it also impacts others, for example by lowering the barriers to visit distant relatives.
In line with the CHI2019 conference theme, our aim is to weave the threads of vehicle automation by gathering people from different disciplines, cultures, sectors, communities, and backgrounds (designers, researchers, and practitioners) in one community to look into concrete future scenarios of driving automation and its impact on HCI research and practice.
Using design fiction, we will look into the future and use this fiction to guide discussions on how automated driving can be made a technology that works for people and society.

Workshop Goals

Our workshop has the following aims:

  • To create an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners in HCI, psychology and cognitive science, engineering, and design to identify and discuss (societal) problems related to automated driving.
  • To discuss state-of-the-art research on automated driving, and how this can influence everyday life and interactions in vehicles in future automated scenarios.
  • To discuss best practices for building a bridge between different threads of society to transfer knowledge from different domains to the design and evaluation of automated vehicles
  • To discuss the design space that automated vehicles provide for HCI research and practice
  • To explore new interaction paradigms for communicating with the automated vehicle in both the interior and exterior
  • To create design fictions as possible future scenarios of automated driving
  • To identify opportunities for collaboration between the diverse communities that are relevant for the design, implementation, and evaluation of future automated vehicle.

Position papers should cover a topic that is relevant to the workshop:

  • Interaction with automated vehicles
  • Shared control and authority
  • Control transition (takeover & handover)
  • Mixed traffic scenarios
  • Interaction between cyclists and pedestrians and automated vehicles
  • Mode and situation awareness
  • Vehicle-infrastructure interaction
  • Legal issues and legislation
  • Theories and research methods
  • Acceptance, trust and complacency
  • Economical aspects
