Our goal is to ideate concrete actions, establish connections, and build cooperations.

Previous events have identified the following key topics to be investigated:

  • Non-driving related tasks (which office tasks are suitable for the restricted environment in vehicles, and howshould interfaces be designed to support productivity while maintaining safety?),
  • Technologies (which particular technologies could be used to support work in vehicles, given the restrictions of the levels of automation?),
  • Ergonomics (what are the requirements for vehicle interiors to support office work?), Evaluation Methods (how can existing results from desktop environments be transferred to the new setting, and which qualitative/quantitative methods can be used to assess the applicability of elaborated interfaces?),
  • Well-Being (how do we also account for necessary relaxation options?), and
  • Interdisciplinarity (what are the most important domains to be considered in design?).


The workshop builds upon these topics by:

  • Elaborating concrete “user stories” on how working in future vehicles (considering suitable tasks, technologies, ergonomic constraints, as well as the levels of automation) could look like.
  • Translating these user stories into experimental designs that allow a comparative evaluation.
  • Providing interested researchers and practitioners a forum to connect and establish future cooperation.
