User experience design for autonomous bus
Everything always in view: combination instrument, displays and e-ticketing in autonomous city bus
AKKA Digital, formerly GIGATRONIK, has developed a combination instrument for the Mercedes-Benz Future Bus test model which unites an attractive design, simple operability and high safety standards. The navigation elements on the bus driver’s display adjust to the current situation thanks to optimal connectivity between vehicle sensors and environmental data - whether approaching the next bus stop, passing through a tunnel, in cases of danger through pedestrians or when monitoring all vehicle systems in semi-autonomous driving mode. A networked e-ticketing system and two large displays in the passenger area ensured a comfortable driving experience for passengers at the world premiere of the bus.
Complete accompaniment of the development process, including the conception of the screen content, the software development and the testing and commissioning of the vehicle
Creation of an interdisciplinary team for developing the utilisation concept for optimal user experience
Linking technical functions to the professional presentation of the concept at the world premiere 2016 in Amsterdam
