Traffic Psychology & Acceptance
In the research area "Traffic Psychology and Acceptance", the ika bundles the psychological competence to evaluate motor vehicle functions, components and systems over the entire development period. In this context, the aspects of human-technology interaction as well as user experience, acceptance, controllability and traffic safety play a key role.
Another core competence is the definition, collection, evaluation and interpretation of latent driver states (frustration, fatigue, distraction, motion sickness, etc.) before they manifest themselves in observable behavior.
Another pillar of the research area is the systematic and demand-oriented, development-accompanying research on the topics of mobility and inclusion. The latter in particular is becoming increasingly important in today's world. Thus, inclusion is understood as a term that encompasses the inclusion of all people, from young to old, with and without disabilities, from ill to healthy. Mobility means participation in life, which is why this topic is particularly close to our hearts.
The entire portfolio is offered in close cooperation with the other technical research areas of the Institute for Motor Vehicles. The team, consisting of psychologists, takes over the planning, implementation, statistical evaluation and interpretation of subject studies. Please contact us.
