In this Ford sponsored project, students were asked to design the future interior of the semi-autonomous vehicle.
In this concept, augmented reality is about expanding and contracting the reality around you. The vehicle acts as a display to the user inside. Passengers can see visuals about their environment, including what restaurants are nearby, where sales are happening, where they can park, and other useful information. This is an interactive display that passengers can use on any surface inside the vehicle.
Adaptability is about making adjustments to better suit the desired atmosphere. The surface of this vehicle is adaptable in a physical and digital way. The surface can both change its aperture or opacity also shift its physical form. This is valuable for re-organizing the interior structure of the car, the disappearance and reappearance of the "puck" that passengers interact with, or bringing forward certain objects only when they're needed to reduce distraction.
