Last year along with my colleagues from The Unversity of Salzburg Christaine Moser and David Wilfinger et. al (full author list and workshop proposal) we held a very hands -on workshop looking at Entertainment in Cars and Transportation, which is a rather important and emerging topic right now. Anyway I plan to make some of the materials from that available online. One of the authors (Sven Krome) has kindly to let me make his paper available here.
Enjoyable Stress Reduction: Approaching A Design Space For The Piloted Driving Context.
Authors: Krome, Holopanian and Walz.
In this paper, we portray ongoing work aiming to define a design space for enjoyable, playful interactions in the context of a piloted driving situation. Towards this purpose, we identify constraints in the general context of piloted driving, the car’s interior and
controls as well as the car manufacturer’s safety recommendations. Furthermore, we align the identified constraints with proposed stresslessness-strategies for rear-seat passengers in order to anticipate conflicts and choices in the design of stress- reducing interactions for the piloted driving context.
