    Our workshop ‚Emotional GaRage‚ at Auto UI 2018 in Toronto was the most well attended workshop at Automotive UI. The workshop was planned as a design thinking workshop to explore and design to user experiences of emotions in the vehicle. The workshop consisted of several exercises exploring the ways in which emotions could be detected, the relative difficulty of detecting different emotions in different channels, identifying the most significant emotions that occur during driving, speculating on how autonomous driving will change the emotions associated with driving and a design prototyping session in which people prototyped solutions to emotionally difficult situations on the road. At the end of the workshop we recorded one minute videos reflecting on our experiences.

    Die Ausbreitung der Informationstechnik in alle Lebensbereiche macht praktisch alle Menschen auf unterschiedliche Weise zu Benutzerinnen oder Benutzern von Computern. Wurde die Frage der Benutzbarkeit bisher primär für Computer am Arbeitsplatz gestellt, so stellt sich am Anfang des neuen Jahrtausends die Frage viel breiter. Die Frage der Benutzbarkeit ist eine zentrale Frage in einer sich entwickelnden Informationsgesellschaft. Die Konferenzreihe “Mensch und Computer” eine Anstrengung, um verschiedene Fachgebiete und Praxisfelder in einen fruchtbaren Diskurs zu bringen und um voneinander zum Nutzen möglichst vieler Menschen zu lernen.

    Die aktuelle Mensch und Computer findet in Dresden statt (02.-05.09.2018).

    Huemer, A. K., Oehl, M., & Brandenburg, S. (2018). Influences on anger in German urban cyclists. Transportation Research Part F: Traffic Psychology and Behaviour, 58, 969-979.

    Abstract: Previous research shows that anger and aggression among road users lead to maladjusted driving and a higher risk of accidents. Especially cyclists as vulnerable road users have a high risk of being injured if they are involved in accidents. This paper examines reasons for cycling anger in two studies. The first study aimed at identifying anger provoking events. Seventy-three cyclists were invited to discuss anger provoking events in a focus group setting. These events were rated regarding their anger intensity, clustered within focus groups, and aggregated across all groups. The first study revealed 208 unique cycling anger provoking events of varying anger intensity that were summarized in six clusters. The second study aimed at validating these anger provoking events, the ratings, and the clusters. Here, 129 participants were asked to complete a four-time point diary study (over the course of ten days), in which they registered all anger provoking events that they experienced while cycling. The results of this study validated most of the anger provoking events of the first study. Both studies show that most anger provoking events are related to conflicts between cyclists with other road users like car drivers and pedestrians. Moreover, conflicts with car drivers seem to cause stronger anger among cyclists than conflicts with other cyclists or pedestrians. Implications for further research and the planning of road infrastructure are discussed.

    Join us for our workshop ‚Emotional GaRage‚ on in-car emotion detection and regulation at Automotive UI 2018, the ACM International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications, is the premier forum for UI research in the automotive domain. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners interested in both the technical and the human aspects of in-vehicle user interfaces and applications, to provide a forum for the exchange of technical information concerning research (and practice) and educational activities for motor vehicle user interface development.

    Autofahrer können auf einer Provinzstraße in den Niederlanden ihr musikalisches Wunder erleben. „Sie nähern sich einer singenden Straße“, steht beim friesischen Dorf Jelsum auf Schildern an der Straße N357. Dann folgt eine Strecke mit speziellen Rillen im Asphalt. Wer das Tempolimit von 60 Kilometern pro Stunde erreicht, hört die ersten Takte der friesischen Hymne „De âlde Friezen“.

  • A Huge Global Study On Driverless Car Ethics Found The Elderly Are Expendable

    In 2016 researchers at the MIT Media Lab launched Moral Machine, a game of ethics which presents players with the kind of road choices which driverless vehicles will soon have to make. Should a driverless car swerve to save a pedestrian crossing the road illegally, while sacrificing its own passengers? Or should an autonomous car sacrifice its passengers to save a pedestrian? These life and death decisions are crucial, especially as they will soon be left to machines. Over the last year, 4 million people took part by answering ethical questions in Moral Machine’s many scenarios – which include different combinations of genders, ages, and even other species like cats and dogs, crossing the road. On Sunday, the day before the first pedestrian fatality by an autonomous car in America, MIT’s Professor Iyad Rahwan revealed the first results of the Moral Machine study at the Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai.
