Autonomous Vehicles, New Mobility & the Built Environment Smart Cities

Journey Mapping to a New Way of Design

What does studying baboons have to do with designing the human interface for the autonomous mobility of the future? Find out by watching the above video, filmed at the 2019 SmartDrivingCars Summit, which also provides an overview of:

  • participatory design using journey mapping to help people understand how they use different modes of transport and to help them understand the challenges for those whose abilities do not match the physical or built environments.
  • the workshop featured a wide range of participants from different disciplines, as well as people with different “mismatches” (see Kat Holmes, Mismatch, about the strategic importance of designing for inclusion).
  • the reason that experiential tools will be important in understanding the mobility needs of communities and neighborhoods.

The above video provides a glimpse of the multi-disciplinary approach and the people-centric design approach of the UC San Diego Design Lab. It is no wonder that the SmartDrivingCar Summit organizer, Dr. Alain Kornhauser, was so excited for this session.

Stay tuned….
