Designing adaptive audio for autonomous driving: an industrial and academic-led design challenge
MetadataShow full item record
The paper discusses a design challenge around the use of adaptive audio to support experience and uptake of autonomous driving. The paper outlines a collaboration that is currently being established between Researchers at Swansea university and a major OEM that is set to examine user-centred approaches to designing audio that enhance and enrich human-experience with driving. The paper outlines the potential collaboration and describes how we will address the challenge to designing adaptive audio for unsupervised /autonomous driving. The paper outlines the research question we will address and how we will apply a tool/method that supports rapid prototyping for novice designers alongside addressing ideas around aesthetics in the interface and relationships between sound as a means for communication and as experience.
