One of the key challenges of autonomous mobility is how we humans are going to communicate with the self-driving autonomous car of tomorrow. Will we use words, gestures or haptic interfaces to articulate what we need to express in the shared spaces in which our fellow motorists are robots?
Ars Electronica’s Shared Space Bots is an interactive installation developed to both educate the public on the transformations to our public space that will be required with the advent of autonomous vehicles as well as providing a platform for research in this area.
Come and witness research in action as the specially developed robots in Shared Space Bots are the protagonists of experiments in human-automobile interaction.
