First workshop on attentive and pervasive UI in automated vehicles


In automated vehicles, drivers will shift their attention between side activities and tasks relevant for vehicle control. As random interruptions lead to performance degradation and are a source of stress/anxiety, use of pervasive attentive user interfaces could mitigate such effects while maintaining comfort and safety. However, in order to develop such interfaces, a more holistic approach to design is needed. This workshop brings researchers and practitioners together to develop a structured research agenda to determine how attentive user interfaces can support the safe engagement in side activities in automated vehicles. After an open discussion will identify the main research questions, groups will model/prototype interactions using a configurable driving simulator provided by the organizers. Results will be published at the workshop website and should lead to scientific publications and collaborations.
