Designing new user interfaces for cars
Speakers: Stephen Brewster
Topic(s): Human Computer Interaction,Mobile Computing
interactions are undergoing major changes as traditional physical buttons,
dials and switchgear are replaced by touchscreens and touch-sensing
surfaces. Drivers are becoming passengers as autonomous vehicles become
the norm. The aim of this lecture is to discuss the issues that arise from
these changes and show some new forms of multimodal interaction that can be
used to address them.
replacement of physical controls allows more aesthetically pleasing and
flexible in-car interiors but the use of touchscreens and gestures may take
more attention away from driving. I will show how haptics, ambient light and
audio can be used to allow rich gesture interactions, and improve input
performance on touchscreens and touch surfaces in cars. We will look at how
thermal feedback can be used to provide new ways of communicating information.
autonomous vehicles we all become passengers with time to fill on our journeys.
If care isn’t taken, motion sickness will increase, particularly when people
try to use immersive content to pass their travel time. I will demonstrate
potential solutions using VR and peripheral feedback that can make immersive
media consumption possible when on the move.
