This was a sponsored project by Honda in 2016 to visualize and develop the future driving experience for the year 2035.  Team: Tanmay Mhatre, Choi Sae-yeol, Henry Song and Raj Desai 

Trend forecasting based on user scenarios and current trends for the year 2035 were developed to gain insights and opportunities in the future automotive market.

The driving experience is enhanced with a “6th sense”. This extra sense communicates the presence of outside elements and the status of the vehicle through multi-sensory elements.

The 6th sense in autonomy removes elements that hinder relaxation and productivity. This sense is not seen, but it is active in helping the users’ well-being.

 

The mode change involves a physical transition of the steering wheel that converts into a passive artificial intelligent element that eliminates the pain points of driving.
