AutoWork 2021 – Workshop @ AutomotiveUI’21

I am happy to announce that the AutoWork workshop series will continue discussing the automotive future of office workplaces. This year, we extend the topic to logistics professions! Join us by registering for the workshop, when registering for the AutomotiveUI’21 conference. Don’t forget to cause an extra spark for discussions by submitting a short talk – for more details, visit: https://matthiasbaldauf.com/autowork2021/

The emergence of automated driving systems will influence roles and practices in many parts of work life. Human factors and user interface design will play an important role in shaping the transition towards more productivity and well-being. The AutoWork 2021 workshop builds on its predecessor workshops by refining a research agenda and drafting concrete research studies and projects towards achieving this goal. This year’s version will especially tackle the challenge of designing both for bottom-up “worker-driven” empowerment and engagement in individual, partly automated transport, as well as for supporting affected users and stakeholders in the systemic economically-driven introduction of fully autonomous vehicles in closed intralogistics areas. In a two-session schedule tailored to fit the requirements of an online event, participants will evaluate gathered requirements from previous workshops and projects on these topics and define relevant user stories and elaborate experimental designs with measurable outcomes to contribute to the research roadmap.
