Translating human needs into high-tech capabilities.
Teague kicked off the program by conducting workshops to prioritize user stories to design against based on prior research. Our futurists and designers explored the ways in which people would realistically interact with autonomous vehicles in the near future, covering the full scope of user experience, from how a person would request and approach a driverless rideshare car, to changing routes, what the vehicle communicates during a ride, and even dealing with an accident
Our iterative design process progressed in cycles of prototyping and testing, going from sketches and wireframes to higher fidelity designs and immersive UI prototypes within each cycle. We began with basic prototypes on stationary bucks made of 80/20 extrusions with video emulating rideshare scenarios. At each stage of refinement, findings and insights were shared with Intel engineering and development stakeholders to identify the sensing and computing requirements for their autonomous drive platform
