Mobile HCI 2017 Workshop:
Mobile Interaction With and In Autonomous Vehicles

Vienna, 4 September 2017

Call for position papers: 26 May 2017 (extended)

The rise of autonomous and fully autonomous vehicles requires a closer examination of how people will interact with them. In this one-day workshop, to be held on September 4, 2017, we especially address two areas:
1) What can we learn from mobile HCI for the interaction design between human drivers and the autonomous vehicle?
2) What opportunities for mobile HCI arise due to new freedoms for drivers, when they also take on the role of passengers in autonomous vehicles?

The workshop seeks to further develop the challenges involved and/or to suggest early solutions through the use of a highly participative format.

Google’s driverless car and the announcement of Uber using self-driving cars to transport people  along with other approaches and vendors will have a significant impact on people’s mobility behavior, on how people interact with autonomous vehicles, and what users will do while riding in such autonomous cars. This will lead to a number of challenges and questions, which need to be addressed and explored. This workshop will focus on the following goals:

* Discuss best practices and patterns for mobile design and how they can be applied to the design of autonomous vehicles;
* Envisioning new interaction opportunities for the driver to communicate with the automated vehicle (and vice versa);
* Explore new designs for hand-over, interruptions and (shared) control situations in mobile HCI and autonomous driving and discuss their practicability in the respective domains;
* Explore engineering issues related to safety, reliability and security properties, as well as certification aspects; 
* Exploration of UX factors such as fun, acceptance and (over)trust;
* The evolution from car a tool to car as a companion and what can be learnt from HRI;
* Examination of situational awareness issues from the perspective of the car and the human;
* Discuss ethics-related questions.

The workshop is intended for mobile HCI, AutomotiveUI, and HRI researchers and practitioners, designers and developers. Workshop candidates have to submit a position paper (up to 4 pages in the CHI extended abstract format) to [log in to unmask]
