The ika-Meetups are all about shaping the mobility of the future. The three main topics Automated Driving, E-Mobility, HMI & User Experience summarise the pillars of future mobility and address still open questions in these research areas.

Like the role models in Silicon Valley, the ika-Meetups are also characterised by a relaxed atmosphere. Normally, there is lively discussion and personal networking over snacks and drinks after the respective presentation at the face-to-face events. Of course, during the Corona Pandemic, the lectures are held online in digital meetings. Nevertheless, afterwards there still is time  to ask questions and to discuss the topic with the speaker and audience

Our speakers are proven experts from research and industry who present current research and development topics. The lectures are explicitly not purely scientific presentations, but focus on both technical solutions and practical applications.

The target group includes, in addition to automotive professionals (engineering colleagues and scientific and technical staff), of course students and, more generally, anyone who is enthusiastic about the subject.

Visual influences to avoid carsickness

Dominique Bohrmann (TU München)

Automated driving creates multi-layered demands on vehicle design and development. Not only the safe and reliable functioning of the technical system be ensured, but also to make the vehicle and its interfaces comfortable and user-friendly. But what does user-friendly mean? How will the vehicle of the future be used and what aspects need to be taken into account? Particularly under the premise of increasing non-driving activities, the influence of kinetic activities, the influence of kinetosis - also known as motion sickness - must be examined. In his lecture, Dominique Bohrmann will show the basics for researching corresponding countermeasures and requirements for the mobility systems of the future.
