Our Meetup series for interested parties presents and discusses current, practice-relevant research topics in the field of future mobility.

Lying is the new way of sitting
Kinetosis as a Challenge for Autonomous Driving

Dominique Bohrmann (DaimlerAG)

As automation progresses, the primary driving task recedes into the background and offers the driver new ways of using the vehicle. As a result of this relief, non-driving activities and innovative approaches to various interior features in particular are moving into the focus of usage scenarios for future mobility concepts. The extent to which these have an effect on the well-being of the occupants is not yet sufficiently known. For example, working simultaneously while driving often leads to nausea symptoms called kinetosis, which severely restrict the well-being of many people. The lecture shows the basics for researching the corresponding requirements for the automobile of the future.
