Week 7 Comic Situations

This week was purely sketching practice and imagining issues that would arise with autonomous cars in use, to come up with possible solutions in the future.


First up are sketches of a car interior with a holographic assistant. I gave the assistant simple shapes to make them less intimidating.

I tried imagining strange situations such as the initial distrust when a reserved passenger rides the car.

I also tried exploring how the car can signal their intent to pedestrians, now that the driver is out of the equation.

Other less obvious situations I thought of included the absence of any pedestrian signaling.
