Retrospective - The evolution of the vehicle & the meaning of third living spaces

The evolution of the vehicle & third living spaces

Carl Benz shaped the year 1886 as the birth of the modern, series-produced automobile. A new era of mobility began, which triggered an avalanche of dramatic changes in many areas of life that is still spreading today. Man was now able to move faster and further. Because of this advantage, more and more space was granted to motorised road traffic over time - cities, professions and services changed around the personal vehicle. Even today, the disadvantages - such as the clear increase in the number of road deaths since the invention of the car - do not prevent people from using this innovation.

Since then, the evolution of the automobile has continued unabatedly. In the course of time, these developments were no longer limited exclusively to the ever faster progress, but also increasingly to comfort and features in the vehicle interior. Today more than ever the car defines itself as Third Living Space - as "third place". It represents a kind of personal retreat in public, where the user has personal room for manoeuvre and can continue actions from the first place - home - and the second place - work. Nevertheless, it is a fact that this room for manoeuvre is limited by the concentration on participation in road traffic and mainly lies in the operation of the vehicle.

Driving the evolution

Driving the evolution

However, autonomous driving, which represents the next evolutionary step of the vehicle, can and will fundamentally change this fact. Once again people and the entire infrastructural ecosystem of the personal vehicle are facing a new threshold of dramatic change. And once again the disadvantages are overshadowed by the massive advantages of autonomou s driving.

In combination with the Sharing Economy, autonomous driving will fundamentally change future mobility. Zero emissions, zero ownership and zero accidents are the three key paradigms driving the evolution of the vehicle. The vehicle as a third living space as we know it today will also be affected by this modification.

The role of the sharing economy

The role of the sharing economy

From the point of view of UX design, it seems more far-sighted to look at the slowly emerging overall picture of the coherent development than to limit oneself exclusively to the coming fact of "autonomous car". The desire for collective consumption in the context of the megatrend of connectivity, which is emerging in the massive successes of the Sharing Economy with services such as Uber or Airbnb, is particularly interesting in this context. It offers the user a far greater range of resource use than would perhaps be possible in any other case. If we now look specifically at the urban space in which the problems of today's mobility are concentrated, it is not surprising that all users are constantly moving away from car ownership and making use of a public mobility offer. In the future, this could mean that a fleet of autonomous vehicles represents this public offer. For the vehicle as a third living space this means an enormous modification. On the one hand, travel time will offer new potential uses that still seem unthinkable today; on the other hand, the car will lose its current individuality in such a scenario.

Interaction through artificial intelligence

Interaction through artificial intelligence

As we live in a time characterized by digitalization, efficiency and effectiveness - and thus sometimes also the cornerstones of the epitome of usability - the boundaries of our three living spaces are blurred like never before by the fascinating technological developments and the associated services. This is already being used to search for intelligent solutions for the potential use of the autonomous vehicle during the journey. Currently, however, most of these solutions are limited to vehicles that are personally owned. Fascinating concepts and developments for vehicle interiors or digital assistants with artificial intelligence features show how we will use the Third Living Space car in the future - we will watch films, hold meetings or simply enjoy the view of a metropolis while driving in the hands of a machine or a computer. But according to the current state of research only if such a vehicle is property.
In the future, the success of an autonomous vehicle will depend on a key element, namely the human-machine interface. Especially in the field of UX design, which is defined by the design of user experiences, this interface represents a great challenge. And there are currently acute research gaps for the big picture: the overall development of mobility. People will never stop moving, only the way and quality they do it will change. And the potentials should not be wasted or ignored even within a sharing economy accessible to all. So the question arises:

How is it possible to preserve individuality in such a scenario and to continue to use the vehicle as Third Living Space while taking into account new technological possibilities such as artificial intelligence?

Mind, a mobility assistant

Mind, a mobility assistant

The application mind, which is based on artificial intelligence, helps to maintain individuality within a public, autonomous fleet while taking into account new technological possibilities. All these changes require an optimal human-machine interaction, a connecting interface for a satisfying user experience. Mind supports the user in all mobility matters: Before, during and after the journey. Mind gets to know the user and remembers his movement profiles and daily routines, from which it can continuously control the mobility needs of the user more intelligently. While driving in the vehicle, mind creates a third living space tailored to the user, whether the user wants to work, engage in domestic activities or relax. The digital application fits easily and intuitively into the users life through pure speech and messenger interaction with natural speech.
