This project aimed to help self-driving vehicle drivers understand how the automation works in different driving conditions. Investment in educational resources can encourage the appropriate use of automated vehicle systems, and thus create a safe driving culture and environment. Instruction method and training content were investigated in this study. In-car interactive instructions were constructed to provide knowledge on underlying principles and feature usage.
The DesigNext Lab focuses on research and applications of emerging interactive technologies in future consumer electronics emphasizing the user experience. We now have more than ten regular members across the Georgia Tech campus as well as a larger group of affiliated faculty and students. Using a VR-enabled product design, development, and evaluation platform, our ongoing project focuses on smart interface design in future autonomous driving and smart consumer electronics.
