2012 (English)In: Proceedings of the the 12th International Design Conference, DESIGN 2012: May 21-24 2012, Dubrovnik, Croatia, Design Research Society, 2012, 1369-1376 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This study aims to present an alternative method for capturing the user's needs and experiences of in-vehicle human machine interfaces. For this purpose, a set of workshops and a repertory grid technique was employed. The combination was tested with a sample of ten participants. Preliminary results indicate that the combination of the workshop and the repertory grid methods have a strong potential to effectively capture users' needs as well as highlight important factors that affect the users' perceptions regarding in-vehicle interactions.
