Design av ett interaktivt styr-monterat infotainment system för lätta fordon (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

This thesis studies what the crucial aspects are when designing and developing an in-vehicle infotainment system for light vehicles that should both extend functionality and improve safety. In order to ground the research, innovations made in automotive infotainment systems are examined and a design for a light vehicle infotainment system that utilizes optical gesture based touch interaction is proposed. This is done with the goal to provide drivers of light vehicles with the same safety and usability improvements that drivers of cars can enjoy. A research through design approach together with heuristics and cognitive walkthrough enabled rapid design iterations to be made in order to produce a prototype to be tested. In the end, a design proposal was presented which showed that there are several similar ways of thinking that can be applied to light vehicle infotainment designs compared to its automotive counterparts. During the design process, the importance of a simple menu; animations to convey spatial connections; and notifications to lower the overall visual clutter were identified as key aspects of a safe and usable infotainment system. 

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats undersöker vilka de viktigaste aspekterna i designprocessen för nya infotainmentsystem är med fokus på utökad funktionalitet och säkerhet för lätta fordon. För att grunda undersökningen så studeras framsteg gjorda inom infotainmentsystem för bilar samt andra relevanta lösningar för lätta fordon. När detta är gjort presenteras en design för ett infotainmentsystemsomanvänderoptiskgest-baserad interaktion. Detta görs med målet att förare av lätta fordon ska få samma säkerhets- och användbarhetsförbättringar som bilförare idag har. En forskning genom design (research through design) approach tillsammans med kognitiv genomgång (cognitive walkthrough) och heuristiker möjliggjorde snabba iterationer i designprocessen. I slutändan presenterades ett designförslag som påvisade att det finns flera liknande sätt att tänka vid design för lätta fordon samt för bilar. Under processen framkom det bland annat att en simpel meny; animationer som framför rumsliga förhållanden; samt notifikationer för att minska den visuella belastningen blev identifierade som nyckelpunkter vid design av ett säkert och användbart infotainmentsystem.
