Automated mobility is on the rise, from autonomous shuttles and automated cars, to sidewalk robots, and from autopilots on planes and trains to unmanned vessels and manned drones. As of yet, however, misunderstanding, misuse, and malfunction of these systems often still compromise our safety and comfort. How can we design for these entanglements when automating mobility is prevalent in society today and in the future?
We envision and investigate unintended consequences of automation on all levels, creating scientific impact by considering social embedding and responsiveness for the design of intuitive and usable human-machine interaction. As a hub for connection to various stakeholders in industry and policy, we create societal impact by applying our knowledge to actual use-cases.
