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.
