Automotive user interface prototyping


#1

One Sentence: Whats happening in your workshop?
We will use car related (realtime) data to generate content for automotive interfaces.

What 3 tags describe your workshop?
UI Design
UX Prototype
Generative Design

In which of the three categories does your workshop fall: beginner, intermediate, advanced
beginner

How long will your workshop be?
(Standard formats are 3h or 2x 3h, but other formats may be possible)
we are not sure yet, 3h or 2x3h are possible

Who is the target audience of your workshop?
Anyone with interest in Design / DataVisualization / Prototyping.

What knowledge do you presume your participants have?
basic vvvv knowledge (beginner workshop?) or other software like processing for creating real time content
some ideas or interest about the future of car interfaces

What will attendees of your workshop learn?
you will learn how easy it is to prototype design ideas. you can use our CarSensorData package and learn how to generate dynamic content (e.g. Speed in the Head-Up-Display).
Depending on the hardware we will be able to use (original steering wheel, USB gaming pedals, LED-stripes, automotive displays, distance sensors, …) you can create / combine / test interaction concepts.
If you think in the future of car interface is no place for displays, we will challenge you to display speed only with light… :)
If you are more interested in setting up your own DataPackage we will probably help you to simulate automotive data sets.

What technical requirements does your workshop have (apart from internet and a projector)?
e.g. special hardware, software, graphiccards, materials, dancers/performers
2x2m place for our test set-up
time for preparation (~ 4hr)
network for all attendees

Who would be the two hosts?
Stefan Beckmann
Alexander Graf

How would the hosts qualify for the topic? (Describe and add links to portfolio website, github, vimeo,… accounts)
Stefan is Designer/Coder/UI specialists at the Daimler Advanced Design Team.
Alex is a long time vvvv-user working for the User Interface Design Team at Daimler.
