Working in Cars

October 15, 2019 at 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Location:482 MacOdrum Library


Andrew Kun, Professor, University of New Hampshire


Today’s vehicles have a myriad user interfaces, from those related to the moment-to-moment control of the vehicle, to those that allow the consumption of information and entertainment. With recent advances in automated vehicles, there is an increased attention to user interactions as they relate to creating a place for work and play during a trip. Given that it is unlikely that most vehicles will be fully automated in the near future, there are also significant efforts to understand how to help the driver switch between different modes of automation. This talk will provide a brief review of these areas of research, and a report on our collaborative work on the topic of creating a mobile office in automated vehicles.
