n the course of the first process step of the RUMBA project (UAP 1.2), the Hochschule der Medien conducted a user study. For this purpose, a combined driving simulator and diary study was used to investigate the requirements of fully automated driving on the vehicle interior as well as on displays and controls from the perspective of passenger car users. A paper (see Publications) reports core findings of the user study, which include non-driving activities performed during automated driving and interior design requirements. Among the non-driving activities, cell phone use and reading play a significant role. Interior requirements can be divided into nine categories: Interior design, climate, lighting, freedom of movement, interaction with passengers, seats, storage/stowage, controls, and shielding.
