The Social Car: Workshop at 4th International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications (AutomotiveUI'12)
Sprache des Titels:
This workshop aims at discussing the potential of cars' socializing one with the other (similar to how humans are exchanging information), and not just translating the Internet of things (IoT) paradigm into the car domain. With the introduction of the concept of "social cars" we attempt to make a blueprint of next generation in-vehicle technologies. This is different from what the Internet of things (IoT) community is talking about in the sense that IoT is sufficient if it has its own ID that could be passively identifiable, whereas social cars have more autonomous capability, so they could serve as a more active and even interactive social being. The central objective is to provoke an active debate on the adequacy of the concept of socializing cars, addressing questions such as who can communicate what, when, how, and why? To tackle these questions, we would like to invite researchers to take part in an in-depth discussion of this timely, relevant, and important field of investigation."
