Heavy vehicles are often used to performing specific tasks, in parallel to driving. Heavy vehicles range from construction vehicles, such as excavators and articulated haulers, to agriculture vehicles, such as tractors and harvesters. Heavy vehicles nowadays are becoming sensor and software-driven, as well as connected and integrated with information systems. This development creates new interaction challenges and research areas. This workshop aims to gather practitioners, researchers, and professionals who wish to explore the potential opportunities, identify research challenges, and innovate in the heavy vehicle domain.
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
The overall goal of this workshop is to discuss emerging challenges in the context of industrial vehicles. To facilitate efficient division into groups, prospective participants are encouraged to express their interest through a 1-4 pages reflection statement or position paper written in CHI Extended Abstract template which covers the following topics, but are not limited to:
Cognitive load and the exchange of more complex information with the operator – Systems are getting more advanced, potentially resulting in higher cognitive loads for the operators. What are the risks and how can we approach this in interaction design?
Keeping or increasing the operator’s situation awareness – Advanced sensor capabilities could allow the heavy vehicle to be more aware of its surroundings, while the operator might pay attention elsewhere. How can we provide notifications and alerts to facilitate an effective information exchange between the operator and machine?
Safety – It is essential to emphasize safe operations for the operator as well as third parties. How can road safety knowledge be applied to heavy vehicles and how do these two types of vehicles differ?
Position papers should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before the deadline. Accepted position papers will be made available on this workshop's website.
