From the early conceptualization, its build-up, continuing development, and ultimately reveal to the public – the Driving Experience Lab (DEL) was one of the main tasks of my employment at Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt. The passenger-car trailer features a driving simulator lab that can be moved anywhere by land. Flexible equipment enables scientific human factors and human-computer interaction studies in the automotive domain. A full-width “show hatch” enables knowledge transfer and presentations to bigger audiences. Most recently, we were able to successfully execute first studies with it at the national garden festival Landesgartenschau Ingolstadt.
We present the lab-in-a-trailer, and the first experiences with it, to industry and academia at the ACM conferences “Mensch und Computer 2021, MuC’21” as well as “Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications 2021, AutomotiveUI’21 ” with descriptive short papers and accompanying videos each – check them out below! We are thereby proud to have received the “Best Demo” Award at MuC’21 and are grateful for the ideas and feedback collected in many discussions on the DEL.
