This study utilizes HMD-based VR to immerse participants in the fully autonomous car, which remove conventional steering wheels and pedals, to prompt their intuitive reactions upon the driving behaviors, as well as collects and analyzes their interaction intents, patterns, and ideal interfaces. The study contributes to HMI design of autonomous vehicles by providing insights about feasible approaches to obtain passenger perception of driving behavior. With this information, fully autonomous cars can adjust driving tactics and operations accordingly to improve trustworthiness, which is crucial
The Light Orchard is an interactive installation that invites people to walk into a grove of futuristic trees, lit with color. The trees are aware of the presence of people in their space, and can respond in many different ways. User can play different games, watch animations, and work together with different simulations, that allow them to easily collaborate, learn, and play together.
Most sound comes through our ears. However, it is also possible to pass vibrations through the bones of the head and bypass much of the normal hearing pathway. This is called bone conduction audio and can be used in situations where the ears need to be plugged, or where you need to leave the ears open to hear ambient sounds. We are studying the psychoacoustics as well as the applied aspects of bone conduction audio. A current application being investigated is the scenario of the distracted cyclist or pedestrian
