The SIIC project explores how sound might address the future interaction challenges of autonomous cars, specifically trust and motion sickness
Reinforce trust into the vehicle
Communication of the intention
The autonomous vehicle communicates its near future manouvers with sounds to the passengers. Accelerations, braking, turns or lane changes are typical manouvers that are communicated to the passengers.
The autonomous vehicle shares with the passengers what it percieves from the exterior environment. All detected events and objects such as approaching vehicles, possible danger, pedestrians are notified with dedicated sounds.
Reduce the motion sickness risk
Alternative driving feeling
Using sounds to anticipate the different manouvers, the vehicle enables a new link with the passengers. Understanding better the vehicle dynamic, the passenger can mentally and physically embrace the ride , with a positive effect on the motion sickness risk.
food for thought ...
Sound design is a major trend in vehicle interaction. But where is the limit between assistance and brand signature?
How far can sound modify the travel experience?
Which will be key to the brand HMI signature with the sound ? Lighting ? Avatar?
