Explore & understand

The automotive industry has gone through an epic disruption with challenges galore. Autonomous driving, the sharing economy, and electric motorization require us to renew our understanding of car users and their needs.

Autonomous driving creates completely new user groups (passengers, pedestrians etc.) with new needs towards entertainment, functionalities, and communication.

Inform your new concepts by early user research data to understand how your products can better face future challenges and needs.

Understand and compare competitor features to learn what works and what doesn’t.

Research tools we use:

  • Ethnography
  • Contextual inquiry
  • Concept assessments
  • Focus groups
  • Comparative usability testing

Design & iterate

Outsource the building of functional test prototypes that work in connection with driving simulator software (i.e. for change lane tasks).

Test low fidelity prototypes and concepts in a lab-based setting for a quick and cost efficient turnaround.

Test your car’s holistic user experience in the only realistic setting – the road.

Run your static UX test right at our location and make use of these logistic advantages for observers, participants and tech setup.

Research tools we use:

  • Prototyping
  • Rapid iterative testing (RITE)
  • Usability / UX testing
  • Expert review
  • Card sorting & tree testing
  • UX clinics
