    Emotion GaRage Vol. II: A Workshop on Affective In-Vehicle Display Design

    At AutoUI’20

    Description:
    Driver performance and behavior can be partially predicated based on one’s emotional state. Through ascertaining the emotional state of passengers and employing various mitigation strategies, empathic cars can show potential in improving user experience and driving performance. Challenges remain in the implementation of such strategies, as individual differences play a large role in mediating the effect of affective intervention. Therefore, we propose a workshop that aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in affective interfaces and in-vehicle technologies as a forum for the development of targeted emotion intervention methods. During the workshop, we will focus on a common set of use cases and generate approaches that can suit different user groups. By the end of this short workshop, researchers will determine ideal intervention methods for prospective user groups. This will be achieved through the method of insight combination to generate and discuss ideas. []

    Nachdem die Halbzeitpräsentation der Forschungsinitiative @CITY aufgrund der aktuellen Pandemielage nicht wie ursprünglich geplant am 27. Mai stattfinden konnte, freuen wir uns, Ihnen nun als neuen Termin für die Veranstaltung den 26. November 2020 bekannt geben zu können. Die Anmeldung ist ab sofort möglich.

    @CITY steht für “Automated Cars and Intelligent Traffic in the City”. In der Initiative haben sich 15 Partner aus der Automobil- und Zulieferindustrie sowie Universitäten und Forschungsinstitute zusammengeschlossen, um – unterstützt durch das Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie – bis Mitte 2022 neue automatisierte Fahrfunktionen für die Stadt zu erforschen. Im Fokus steht hierbei das automatisierte Fahren durch Engstellen, über komplexe Kreuzungen und Kreisverkehre sowie die Interaktion des automatisierten Systems mit dem Fahrer und mit anderen Verkehrsteilnehmern – insbesondere mit Fußgängern und Radfahrern.

    Anmelden können Sie sich ab sofort über den nachfolgenden Link []

    Die Kommunikation zwischen Mensch und Fahrzeug sowie die sozioökonomischen Folgen des vernetzten und automatisierten Fahrens stehen im Mittelpunkt der japanisch-deutschen Forschungskooperation CADJapanGermany (Connected and Automated Driving). Zwei Institute des Deutschen Zentrums für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) sind an diesem internationalen Vorhaben beteiligt und bringen ihre Kompetenzen im Bereich der Verkehrsforschung ein. Ziel der teilnehmenden Forschungseinrichtungen und Universitäten ist es, technologische Innovationen zu fördern und den gesellschaftlichen Dialog zu diesem für die beiden Automobilnationen Japan und Deutschland wichtigen Zukunftsthema zu unterstützen.

    ACM IUI 2020 is the 25th annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces community and serves as a premier international forum for reporting outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces. ACM IUI is where the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) community meets the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community. IUI 2020 is also very interested in contributions from related fields, such as psychology, behavioral science, cognitive science, computer graphics, design, the arts, etc.

  • Workshop at MuC’19: „Emotions in the Age of Automated Driving – Developing Use Cases for Empathic Cars“

    Join our workshop „Emotions in the Age of Automated Driving – Developing Use Cases for Empathic Cars“ at MuC’19:

    Improving user experience of highly automated vehicles is key to increase their acceptance. One possibility to realize this is the design of empathic cars that are capable of assessing the emotional state of vehicle occupants and react to it accordingly by providing tailored support. At the moment, the central challenge is to derive relevant use cases as basis for the design of future empathic cars. Therefore, we propose a workshop that aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in affective computing, affective interfaces and automated driving as forum for the development of a roadmap towards empathic vehicles using design thinking methods. During the workshop, we will gain a common understanding of the central concepts and listen to impulse talks about current and recent projects on emotions during automated driving. Based on this, relevant use cases are generated in group work and discussed with the goal to identify potential research and knowledge gaps. Finally, a road map for research towards the realization of automated empathic cars is formulated from the results.

    Abstract

    Objective: The present study has 3 objectives: First, we wanted to examine whether the Cycling Anger Scale (CAS) applies to German professional bike messengers, because this scale was previously developed with nonprofessional cyclists in Germany. Second, we wanted to look at possible differences in cycling anger experience and expression between professional German bike messengers and nonprofessional German cyclists. Third, we explored whether cycling anger is somehow related to driving anger and general anger.

    Methods: We applied German versions of the CAS, the Driving Anger Scale (DAS), and the State–Trait Anger Expression Inventory (STAXI) to a sample of 123 professional German bike messengers. Then we compared their ratings with the results of 421 nonprofessional German cyclists.

    Results: Regarding our first objective, results indicate that the CAS model fit is better for nonprofessional than for professional cyclists. However, the CAS in a slightly modified version can be used for professional cyclists as well. As for our second objective, we show that professional cyclists experience significantly less cycling anger than nonprofessional cyclists. However, bike messengers report more frequent aggressive cycling behaviors when angry, indicating a weaker link between trait anger while cycling and aggressive behavior among professionals. Thirdly, we found relations between cycling anger, driving anger, and general anger.

    Conclusions: We conclude that the CAS in its slightly modified 13-item version with the established 4 subscales produces an acceptable model fit and can be applied to professional German bike messengers for further research purposes or applied issues; for example, traffic education or self-awareness in terms of accident prevention behaviors. In addition, for professional cyclists, less anger does not result in less aggressive cycling behaviors. Subsequent research should explore the role of anger in behavioral regulation of cyclists’ unsafe cycling behaviors taking different levels of experience and professionalism into account in order to reduce adverse effects of anger on traffic safety.
