09:00 - 12:00 Morning Workshops 

W1 (Room D406, morning) - The 4th Workshop on Localization vs. Internationalization: Creating an international survey on Automotive User Interfaces

International surveys tend to collect data on attitudes, values and behaviors towards a specific topic from users from multiple countries, providing an insight on the differences and similarities across nations, cultures or geo-political structures. Consequently, international surveys provide important information about the diversity of the user’s needs, values and preferences, which have to be taken into consideration when creating products and services as widely used as the personal automobile. The workshop will focus on the design and development of an international survey on automotive user interfaces on a global scale. It will try to identify the most important aspects related to automotive user interfaces, which should be addressed in the survey. It will also prepare a strategy for its international distribution and create a plan for comprehensive data collection. Lastly, it will try to outline venues and communication channels for the survey dissemination, with the goal of achieving wide visibility. See extended abstract

W2 (Room D407, morning) - The 2nd Workshop on User Experience in Urban Air Mobility: From Ground to Aerial Transportation

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) is expected to pave the way for a new mobility experience by providing air travel services around cities and urban areas. However, few studies have derived user needs and requirements from a transportation experience perspective. Therefore, we propose an interactive workshop to discuss people’s expectations when experiencing UAM actively. We want to extend on the prior workshop held at AutomotiveUI 2021 which will continue the discussion about user experience for different types of UAM operations. The workshop includes keynote presentations, position paper presentations, and interactive group discussions with the following objectives: 1) to understand the role of UAM in future transportation, 2) to understand the way that people expect their transportation journey when using UAM, and 3) to collect design considerations to support the transportation journey in UAM.

W3 (Room D408, morning) - Workshop on Automotive Mixed Reality Applications: Transitional Interfaces, Multi-User VR, and Helmet-Mounted AR for Cyclists

With the increasing development of mixed reality (MR) technology and available devices, the number of its purposes and applications
in vehicles and for road users increases. Mixed reality may help to increase road safety, allow drivers to perform non-driving related
tasks (NDRTs), and enhance passenger experiences. Additionally, helmet-mounted displays (HMDs) for cyclists could leverage MR to
augment cyclists’ vision and contribute to road and pedestrian safety. MR can also be helpful in the transition toward 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 immerse passengers in virtual worlds and contributing
to joyful passenger experiences. Current MR research usually focuses on one user at a time and at one point of the reality-virtuality
continuum. In this workshop, we will discuss the potentials and constraints as well as the impact, role, and adequacy of MR in driving
applications and simulations, including multi-user MR experiments, transitional interfaces, and HMDs for cyclists. The primary goal
of this workshop is to set a research agenda for the use of MR in intelligent vehicles and for cyclists within the next 3 to 5 years and
beyond. See extended abstract

W4 (Room D502, morning) - Authority vs. Responsibility: Revisiting Socio-Technical System Approaches to Design for Convenient Forms of Smart Mobility

The focus of future mobility is slowly shifting from individual car-based mobility to (shared, automated, and electric) mobility (as a
service – MaaS). While such novel forms of transportation promise benefits related to environmental impact and economical viability,
practical aspects could negatively affect the users’ convenience and comfort. With this workshop, we aim to start a discussion on
these challenges of future mobility and initiate an exchange across participants from different disciplines, cultures, and backgrounds
to find solutions that support the user experience of smart mobility. See extended abstract

W5 (Room D509, morning) - Workshop on Multimodal Motion Sickness Detection and Mitigation Strategies for Car Journeys

The mass adoption of automated vehicles in the near future will benefit safety (of passengers and pedestrians), the environment (low
emissions), and society (accessibility, on-demand travel). There are, however, still challenges that need to be addressed, with one of
the most crucial being motion sickness. In automated vehicles, the interior could be transformed into a living room or a working
space, allowing occupants to spend their time with non-driving activities. These changes are likely to provoke, and increase, motion
sickness incidence To that end, this workshop will explore the current state of motion sickness detection and mitigation strategies from different angles (e.g., closed-loop detection, multimodal motion cues,etc.) through expert talks and reflections, followed by discussions. The workshop will develop an agenda for motion sickness research in automated vehicles, facilitate new research ideas and fruitful collaborations. See extended abstract

W6 (Room D510, morning) - Build Your Own Genie and Jarvis: 2nd Workshop on Characteristics and Design Considerations of In-Vehicle Intelligent Agents

Intelligent agents (IAs) have become popular with the development of artificial intelligence technologies. In-vehicle intelligent agent (IVIA), a specialized version of IAs in a vehicle context, is also notable. However, it is hard to well-define user needs and requirements and translate them into actual design features because many factors (user characteristics, task types, road conditions, etc.) are complicated to consider. In this vein, to make a better understanding of the topic, the purposes of this workshop are: 1) to integrate a list of design variables and characteristics of IVIAs, 2) to develop IVIA prototypes especially considering factors of appearances and voices, and 3) to investigate user preferences towards IVIA prototypes under different user scenarios. Through the user-involved design activities, we will seek to contribute the design of IVIAs. See extended abstract

14:00 - 17:00 Afternoon Workshops 

W7 (Room D406, Afternoon) - Let's negotiate with automation: How can humans and HMIs negotiate disagreement on automated vehicles?

In automated vehicles, the driver and the vehicle make a decision on the driving. However, there is no guarantee that drivers always agree or follow the system's decision. Drivers can reject the system's proposal or regain control, and it reduces the usefulness of automated vehicles. When a decision conflict happens, the vehicle can negotiate with the driver. Human-human communication depends on the individual's attitude and situation. Similarly, the negotiation style needs to differ depending on the context of conflict and the cause of disagreement. In this workshop, we address the negotiation approach to designing HMI and discuss considerations for applying the human-human negotiation style to human-automated vehicle interaction design. HMI design using a negotiation approach can address the decision conflict between humans and automation and expect enhancing trust and acceptance.

W8 (Room D407, Afternoon) - Accessible Automated Automotive Workshop Series (A3WS): International Perspective on Inclusive External Human-Machine Interfaces

The fact that automated vehicles will be part of road traffic raises the question of how human road users, like bicyclists or pedestrians,
could safely interact with them. Research has proposed external human-machine interfaces (eHMIs) for automated vehicles as a
potential solution. Concept prototypes and evaluation so far has mainly focused on young, healthy adults, as well as on people without visual impairments. For a “one-for-all” holistic, inclusive solution, however, further target groups like children, seniors, or people with (other) special needs will have to be considered. In this workshop, we bring together researchers, experts, and practitioners working on eHMIs to broaden our perspective on inclusiveness. We aim to identify aspects of inclusive eHMI design that can be universal and tailored to any culture and will dedicate time to discuss methods, tools, and scenarios for inclusive communication.

W9 (Room D408, Afternoon) - A Workshop on Driving Style of Automated Vehicles in Ambiguous Driving Scenarios

Highly and fully automated driving systems have taken control of driving instead of human drivers, and this trend is expected to
increase. However, what we should have solutions that the driving algorithm development cannot solve are ambiguous driving
situations. What if a vehicle is significantly slower than the speed limit in which an AV follows it? Should the AV overtake the leading
vehicle, or should it continue following it at a lower speed? What if an AV lies in the gray area of passing a junction when the traffic
light turns into the “yellow” phase? Should an AV stop or continue passing a junction? We must have answers to these series of
questions that the algorithms cannot solve. As a starting point, this workshop aims to explore user perceptions of AV driving behavior
(i.e., driving style and policy) in potential ambiguous scenarios. Through this workshop, we will find out potential issues determining
driving style and policy in ambiguous driving scenarios, thereby enhancing road safety in future driving situations.

W10 (Room D502, Afternoon) - Emotion GaRage Vol. III: A Workshop on Affective In-Vehicle Display Applications

Empathic in-vehicle interfaces can address driver affect and mitigate decreases in driving performance and behavior that are associated with emotional states. Empathic vehicles can detect and employ a variety of intervention modalities to change user affect and improve user experience. Challenges remain in the implementation of such strategies, as a broader established view of practical intervention modalities and strategies is still absent. Therefore, we propose a workshop that aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in affective interfaces and in-vehicle technologies as a forum for the development of displays and alternatives suitable to various use case situations in current and future vehicle states. During the workshop, we will focus on a common set of use cases and generate approaches that can suit different user groups. By the end of this workshop, researchers will create a design flowchart for in-vehicle affective display designers when creating displays for an empathic vehicle. See extended abstract
