Purpose and goal
The most important result from the project is increased knowledge of how driver behavior and experience of secondary task interaction, changes when driver assistance systems are active. A SWOT analysis of the methods explored in the project is compiled in a methods catalog. The goal with the project was also to contribute with recommendations from research and design exploration conducted in the project to enhance existing company guidelines and design recommendations, to transfer gained knowledge to product development projects and to contribute to ISO discussions.
Expected results and effects
The needs and requirements of truck and car drivers visualized in an impact map have been used to address design challenges throughout the project. A methods catalogue and HMI recommendations for ST task interaction have been compiled. The project results are expected to have measurable benefits in terms of improved UX that increases customer attraction of the products and services developed by participating partners. The knowledge generated has and will also come into the public domain through public dissemination.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has performed User centered research as a scientific foundation. In the SEER project work is done iteratively starting with exploration of the working context of truck and car drivers, continuing with design of prototype HMI:s that has been tested and evaluated using a variety of evaluation methods from the body of scientific Human Factors knowledge. New methods have been proposed and established methods have been tested in new settings relevant for automated driving. The project is organised in four work packages; SoA & Use cases, Design, Evaluations and Recommendations.
