--------------------| SCOPE OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE |----------------------
Automotive user interfaces and automated vehicle technology pose several
challenges to support all diverse facets of user needs. These range from
inexperienced,  thrill-seeking, young  novice drivers to elderly drivers
with a  mostly opposite set of  preferences together with their  natural

Implementation-wise,  the automotive  industry is currently  focusing on
pushing in-vehicle technology towards fully automated driving, with tech
companies joining these efforts to raise the technology to the readiness
level as quickly  as possible. Consequently, commercial  research toward
automated  driving systems (ADS) is  mainly focusing  on an  innovation-
driven and technology-centered  perspective, frequently focusing on just
novelty-related factors. Aspects such as user experience, acceptance and
trust are  often neglected  or reduced  to a secondary status and, thus,
underresearched. However, this human factor is critical for a comprehen-
sive and  long term establishment of  ADS technology on  both the market
and  within society. Therefore, it  is of utmost important to understand
all the factors in the (context  of automation) that  have an  impact on
the overall  experience (UX) of  and  within an automated  vehicle. This
includes operators  of automated vehicles, vehicle  passengers, and  any
other  traffic participants affected  by automated  vehicles. We believe
that there is an absolute need to focus on a human-centered design (HCD)
perspective  to  raise ADS  innovation to  the next  level and, thus, to
achieve wide acceptance in society that is justified by an appropriately
sophisticated technology.

-------------------------| TOPICS OF INTEREST |-------------------------
The aim  of this special issue is, thus, to discuss special requirements
of user centered design  applied to automated driving (referring  to SAE
automation levels 3 and above) to solve essential challenges  and ident-
ify  opportunities.  To  emphasize the  need  for  a human-centered per-
spective on  automated driving, we invite AutomotiveUI, CHI, and  "Human
Factors"  researchers  and  practitioners working in the field to submit
their research findings to this iCom special issue.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Designing user experience for automated driving
* Implications of human  centered design  for automated driving systems?
* Specific challenges of different levels of ADS on user centered design
* Application  of  user centered design approaches from other domains to
  automated driving
* Acceptance criteria for (automated) driving systems on both individual
  (driver) and societal levels
* Ergonomic aspects in highly automated driving
* Natural user interfaces in the automotive context
* Futuristic concepts of shared control, vehicle interior,  & in-vehicle
  non-driving-related (NDR) activities
* Interface  concepts that address  the transition from manual to  fully
  automated driving
* Hedonic and pragmatic qualities of driving experiences
* Methods for enabling and quantifying trust-in-automation
* Methods to foster  driving pleasure and concepts for in-vehicle gaming
* Requirements for automated  driving systems based on personality, age,
  gender, culture, or other human-centered parameters
* Personalization of vehicle behavior and interfaces
* Driving simulator studies in the broader context of automated driving,
  including combinations  of different automation levels and involvement
  of non-drivers
* User studies addressing automated driving within FOT/NDS
