Designed for SEDRIC, the driverless Volkswagen concept car, these interface scenarios envision what the future of autonomous transportation could look and feel like.
To build trust in autonomous systems, the interaction and communication between humans and machines will have to be personalized, transparent and intuitive.

Five every-day scenarios that showcase characters diverse in background, nationality, age and profession – from a father sending his children to school or a doctor making house calls to an elderly woman on the way to see her relatives – emphasize different forms of interaction and highlight accessibility and trust as key aspects. The journeys of the individual passengers demonstrate a broad range of use cases for personalized interfaces.
Depending on the user’s specific needs, the features of SEDRIC’s interface change. For the children, it provides visual entertainment, for the doctor confidential phone calls to her patients, for the grandmother a zoom for her bad eyesight, and so forth – all features emerging naturally out of the communication between human and machine, without a menu to read or a button to press.
