I am an interaction & service designer and design researcher with a background in product design. I engage projects users and stakeholders in participatory design processes, designing and facilitating design games, workshops, co-creation and prototyping sessions.
Co-Drive is a new service for traveling and socializing by car between a driver of an automated vehicle and a remote passenger connected via virtual reality from home. As a projection on the windshield, the driver can see the remote passenger waiting at a Co-Drive stop and can decide to pick her/him up. The remote passenger will be hosted as a hologram inside the car. The hologram will be recorded at home by the passenger, even if the concept is still open to different kinds of virtual and robotic embodiments. rnrn The passenger will be physically at home and will be picked up by the driver at a Co- Drive bus stop located in the city. rnrnThe passenger will be joining the car trip by wearing a VR headset. rnrnPassengers will also have the opportunity to take the driving lead from home and tele-operate the car.
