AutoJammin': Designing Progression in Traffic and Music

Publication Year: 2016 Publication Type : ConferenceProceeding


Since the early days of automotive entertainment, music has played a crucial role in establishing pleasurable driving experiences. Future autonomous driving technologies will relieve the driver from the responsibility of driving and will allow for more interactive types of non-driving activities. However, there is a lack of research on how the liberation from the driving task will impact in-car music experiences. In this paper we present AutoJam, an interactive music application designed to explore the potential of (semi-) autonomous driving. We describe how the AutoJam prototype capitalizes on the context of the driving situation as structural features of the interactive music system. We report on a simulator pilot study and discuss participants’ driving experience with AutoJam in traffic. By proposing design implications that help to reconnect music entertainment with the driving experience of the future, we contribute to the design space for autonomous driving experiences.
