Special Issue "User Interfaces to Path the Way for Interaction with Tomorrow's Vehicles"
Guest Editors: Andreas Riener and Myounghoon Jeon
Submission Deadline: February 28, 2019

Special Issue to be published in "Multimodal Technologies and Interaction" (MTI; ISSN 2414-4088). MTI is an international, scientific, peer-reviewed, open access journal of multimodal technologies and interaction published quarterly online by MDPI. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue.

Automotive user interfaces and automated vehicle technologies pose numerous 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 limitations. In the future, the driving task will increasingly be shared between the driver and the vehicle (level 3) or the driver will be pushed into a passive passenger role (level 4). In the long term, full automation (level 5) will require totally new UI/UX concepts - as the drivers don't need to control the vehicle or are not allowed to do. Thus, we need to put efforts into the design of radically new automotive user interfaces to support the driver/passenger in different levels and activities. Acceptance of these new technologies will, however, be highly dependent on aspects like trust in technology and acceptance of the automated driving system (ADS) as well as the successful communication of system state/black-box behavior (vehicle intentions). In this regard, the decision-making algorithm (moral decision?) will play an important role. This special issue is set on top of this problem and inviting submissions related to the following topics (but are not limited to):

* Transfer of control between driver and vehicle (forth and back, switching between levels)
* Trust in technology and acceptance of assistance systems
* Ways for effective office work in cars (reading, typing)
* Driver state estimation (e.g., emotions, mind wandering, situation awareness, readiness to takeover, etc.)
* Communication in the exterior, e.g., concepts for vehicle-pedestrian interaction
* Novel forms of communication (gestures, speech, brain-computer interfaces)
* Artificial intelligence technologies in the car
* In-vehicle AR/VR applications

Manuscripts should be submitted online at <> before or by February 28, 2019 (earlier submission is possible and welcome!). Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Multimodal Technologies and Interaction is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
