Abstract:This project presents a new way of providing interactions between people and the car. The concept consists of three different parts. First a new way of interacting between the driver and the cluster using gesture interaction. The second part describes why and how the car can be designed around the smartphone. The last part focuses on the feedback from the car and how this can be made more natural. A user test was conducted to test the discoverability of the gesture interaction on the steering wheel. Particularly, the user test explored the use of touchpads on the steering wheel, a totally new application in the automotive industry. 14 participants were asked to perform several tasks using a low-fidelity prototype. The test results highlighted a high discoverability potential of gesture interaction and two main points of improvement to ease the process for users.
