Welcome to our Workshop on Automotive XR Applications
- 2020-11-17: Registration: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- 2020-11-01: Workshop updated to virtual only participation
- 2020-10-06: Workshop proposal accepted at MUM 2020 - the 19th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia
With the increasing development of mixed reality (MR), the number of its purposes and applications in vehicles increases. Mixed reality may help to increase road safety, allow drivers to perform non- driving related tasks (NDRTs), and enhance passenger experiences. MR can also be helpful in the transition towards automated driving. However, there are still a number of challenges with the use of MR when applied in vehicles, and also several human factors issues need to be solved. Additionally, virtual reality (VR) has the potential to simulate mixed reality applications for HCI research, such as pedestrian and passenger experiences. In a schedule tailored to fit the requirements of a hybrid presence and online event, participants will define relevant user stories and use cases and elaborate experimental designs with measurable outcomes to contribute to the research roadmap.
Attendance: Virtual via Zoom and Miro
Duration: Half-day (approx. 4 hours)
Start: Sunday, November 22, 01:30pm CET
- HOUR 1: We will start off with introductions and then present key concepts in mixed reality in the context of automated driving.
- HOURS 2 & 3: Brainstorming in groups. Participants will get to design AR/VR/MR applications by choosing from a multitude of options (e.g., AR + HUD + Pedestrian Safety). The outcome will be presented by each group followed by an engaging discussion.
- HOUR 4: Participants will get to either develop more MR scenarios or use the existing ones to design user studies (e.g., how could this particular scenario be researched and validated?).
- Wrap-up: We will share the findings and discuss the participants’ workshop experience.
Every MUM 2020 participant is invited to participate in the workshop sessions. Please make sure to register via the official conference registration system. Please send an email to email@example.com if you would like to participate.
