Week 11 – The car as a driver

This week’s focus revolved around 2 sections which were, How the car signals its intentions to pedestrians and other cars.

This requires the… Read more →

I gave the assistant simple shapes to make them less intimidating. Below is the interior in a more zoomed out view,… Read more →

In the survey, I wrote down situations that would let the reader interact with an autonomous car. Examples of questions included reacting to sudden roadblocks, trusting your child to the care of an autonomous vehicle, and also… Read more →
