Designing the Driving experience

I recently came across a very recently published book chapter called ‘Design, User Experience and Usability: Interactive Experience Design” that  includes a series of papers that address the latest research in design and use of computing systems. The book is organised in several chapters ranging from designing for the Web experience, to mobile applications and  information and knowledge design and visualisation.


‘Designing the Driving Experience’ is a chapter in the book that itself  is formed by a collection of a number of papers outlining current research in the area of designing the driving experience- ranging from automation, to studies on the usability and user experience of in-car technologies.

The complete list of papers that can be found in the chapter :

Designing for the Naturalistic Driving Experience (Wanda Eugene, Jerone Dunbar, Alison Nolan, Juan E Gilber and Renesha L. Hendrix)

Exploring User Experience in the Wild: Facets of the Modern Car (Dimitrios Gkouskos, Ingrid Pettersson, MariAnne Karlsson,and Fang Chen)

Drivers and Automation: A study About Cultural and Behavioral Influence in the Interaction with Driver Assistants (Rafael Cirino Goncalez and Manuela Quaresma).

Going on a Road-trip with my electric car: Acceptance Criteria for long-distance-use of Electric vehicles. (Julian Halbey, Sylvia Kowaleski, Martina Ziefle).
