  2nd Workshop on Augmented Reality for Intelligent Vehicles

  colocated with AutoUI 2018 (
  September 23, 2018 | Toronto, Canada

Augmented reality (AR) has the potential to improve road safety, support
more  immersive (non-) driving  related  activities, and finally enhance
driving  experience. AR may also  be the enabling  technology to help on
the  transition  towards  automated driving. However, augmented  reality
still faces a number of  technical challenges when  applied in vehicles,
and also  several human factors  issues need to be solved. In this work-
shop, we will discuss potential and constraints as well as impact, role,
and, adequacy  of AR in driving  applications. The primary  goal of this
workshop is to define a research agenda for the use of AR in intelligent
vehicles within the next 3 to 5 years.

In this workshop, we will  discuss and  exchange ideas  for solutions in
the 4 problem fields (i) Computational  issues, (ii) Perception  issues,
(iii) Physical issues, and (iv) Cognitive issues.

Goal 1: Discuss practical usage
First, we aim to exchange ideas on the practical usage of AR devices in
exploring augmented reality for vehicles. We invite experts to  present
their  experiences with, and reflections on, using AR, and relate these
experiences and reflections to use in or around vehicles. Specifically,
we are  interested in  relating  practical  experiences to the next two
goals of the workshop.

Goal 2: Identify challenges and hypotheses
Second, we aim to outline a  set of research challenges, for the coming
3 to 5 years, to  provide  reflections  about these  challenges, and to
support these challenges with a set of hypotheses.

Goal 3: Chart research roadmap
Finally, we aim to  propose a roadmap to tackle the challenges and test
some of the hypotheses.

The final goal of this workshop is to provide an avenue  for researchers
exploring human-machine  interaction in and around vehicles to  exchange
ideas  related to the use of AR in their  work, and to start  charting a
path towards productive collaboration in the field.

Submission Guidelines and Indication of Interest

The target audience for this workshop are researchers  and practitioners
in the AutoUI/HCI  community, who are  interested to  bring  forward the
field of AR in driving applications. We invite researchers interested in
this workshop  to submit (short) reflection  statements per Email to the
workshop organizers.

Submissions for the workshop (not anonymous, i.e. including author names
and affiliations) should be  compiled using the  CHI extended  abstracts
(EA) format. We  encourage  participants  to submit  1-2 page reflection
statements contributing to one or more of the workshop goals- see above.
Successful  submissions will  have the  potential to  raise  discussion,
provide insights for other attendees, or illustrate problems and provide
potential solutions.

>> We invite 1-2 page (CHI EA format) reflection statements.
>> Submission deadline is August 6, 2018.

In addition, we  invite all AutoUI/HCI researchers and  practitioners to
indicate their general  interest on the workshop by dropping us an email
at <[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>>. This way, we'll have the chance to reach out
to an even  greater  community and share  results and discuss our ideas,
problems, and challenges.
