 In-Vehicle UX

Best Practices for Implementing Traffic Jam Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control Features




Download Report

Report Summary:

Strategy Analytics conducted an expert evaluation of adaptive cruise control and traffic jam assist features in several 2015 model-year vehicles in order to construct a series of UX and HMI-focused best practices for these systems.  When all subsystems controlling speed and steering operate as expected, the semi-automated driving modes function smoothly and comfortably.  However, in all systems a notification is not reliably provided when a subsystem fails.  Recommendations include clear indication of system state at all times, clear control labeling, and avoidance of excessive warnings.
