AV Communication Panel, 2018
Humans safely share the road by exchanging numerous gestures and signals. Self-driving vehicles require designers to consider new ways for cars to communicate this important information. Drive.ai’s autonomous shuttles are fitted with panels that share the vehicle’s intentions through animated messages, helping to establish trust while ensuring that everyone on the road feels safe. By observing the behavior of human drivers and inviting public feedback in town hall meetings, Drive.ai designers continue to refine how autonomous vehicles (AVs) can best communicate with people.
Evolution of AV Panel Messaging Design
Drive.ai designers have repeatedly modified the communication panels in order to provide the clearest messages. Panels at the front, rear, and sides convey different messages, and their locations near the tires and bumpers reflect where people most often look to determine a car’s actions.
