Automotive Interaction Design

Update: To support a larger audience, we're moving our venue to The Square @ SapientNitro. Please make sure you update your calendars!

At October's IxDA London event we will continue to probe the role of Interaction Design in specific areas that matter in people's lives. This time, we will be focusing on the world of cars, transportation and mobility.

We have three speakers at this event: Victor Szilagyi, Duncan Brumby and Ian Bach.

Victor will give us a broad view across the changing world of design inside and outside of the car. How connectivity, apps and shifting perspectives are changing the way we relate to cars, cities and streets.

Duncan will share insights from his research into the psychology of driving, specifically around how drivers allocate attention to secondary devices, and manage interruptions.

Ian will walk us through an industry-leading case study where digital and physical user interfaces of a car were designed in concert.

More details on the speakers

Victor Szilagyi
Somewhere between studying Psychology and Urban Planning, Victor came across this thing we call Interaction Design. Since then he's created products and services that live in your home, pocket and car for the likes of Yahoo!, Samsung, and Intel.

Duncan Brumby
Duncan Brumby is a Senior Lecturer at University College London working in the UCL Interaction Centre. Dr. Brumby’s research has been published in leading HCI and Cognitive Science outlets. His work on multitasking has received best paper awards at CHI (2007, 2012), and his work on interactive search is one of the most-cited articles from the Human-Computer Interaction journal 2008-2010. To support his work, Dr. Brumby has attracted significant amounts of external funding from the UK’s Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC). He is Associate Editor for the International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, is on the technical programme committee for the ACM CHI conference and ACM MobileHCI conference, and is a member of the EPSRC College.

Ian Bach
Ian is a visual interaction designer with broad experience creating new digital products. From mobile to web, connected products, wearables, consumer electronic and automotive UI for some of the biggest and smallest companies in the world. From strategy to production.

His background in industrial design informs a multi-disciplinary approach and a passion for digital products designed for the physical world.

      Hi Nir -- the video was done by Sapient our venue hosts for internal sharing, and was not by us. Unfortunately, they're unable to share the video for public viewing. Sorry!

    Great flow through the talks, which worked very well together. Ideal venue in terms of size and layout, a bit noisy but I think we can live with it :) Thanks to SapientNitro and Futureheads as ever.

      Just a note to say the link to Duncan in the description above is another one to Ian, might need a wee correction...

    A really fascinating night, not least for the different, uh, drivers (ouch) behind the work presented in each talk. Great venue for a larger group. Respect to Sapient, IxDA and Futureheads.

    Thoroughly enjoyed it; interesting work being done. Thanks to the organisers, too - if it hadn't been moved to Sapient I wouldn't have been able to attend as I was initially on the wait list.

    Excellent presentations. As a non-car user myself I wondered how much I would connect with the topic but I found the presentations thought provoking and very interesting. Thanks all!

    very informative and thought provoking presentations tonight - issues not only relevant to automotive interaction design but also to interaction design in other fields

  • Will M.

    Three lenses - societal, academic, specific - on a single, interesting topic made it more interesting than other talks.

  • jason m.

    An amazing trinity of talks - from broad mobility to depth interaction and a multi-disciplinary concept piece. When people ask me what actually is interaction design?, I can point them to even more fabulous material.
