Designing Adaptation in Cars: An Exploratory Survey on Drivers’ Usage of ADAS and Car Adaptations
Current production cycle cars offer a wide range of driver assistance features spanning from Advanced Driver Assistance Systems to more established systems such as wing mirrors. All these features allow an increasing amount of adaptation enabling the driver to tailor all them to his or her requirements. However, drivers’ usage of and attitude towards these features as well as their possible adaptations are largely unexplored and, as a consequence, not well understood. We present an exploratory survey on this topic and apply an inclusive design approach in order to accommodate the whole range of diversity in our population. The results indicate a low usage rate of driver assistance features as well as their possible adaptations. However, results suggest a high appreciation for a potential smart adaptation of driver assistance features.
