food for thoughts ...

How to consider the vehicle as a link between passengers and surrounding and between passengers?

Don't we need art and imagination in addition to just convenience, comfort, ergonomy and status?

How to design the desirable autonomous experience for the ex-driver?

Can we think displays as windows on the world: from e-mirror to e-windshield to building e-window?
