Automation might not fundamentally change the value of the car and it will not make the driver obsolete, but it will create new conditions for personal transportation. The autonomous car enhances safety and the quality of the driving experience and it enriches the time we spend in cars. In accordance with current technological trends within the automotive industry, my project focusses on the transfer of information to the driver. It combines augmented reality head-up displays and autonomous vehicles, through which I wish to explore the future of information systems in cars: the personalized driving interface.
In this project, I adapt smartphone screen culture to car dashboard design. Drivers can decide to be shown complete details or a minimalised display of dashboard items. Even a visual driving assistance system can become anthropomorphic and customized.
