The future pedestrian among self-driving cars

In Alicja's words...

"Fast-forward at least 10 years into the future and find yourself in London city centre filled both with autonomous vehicles and regular cars. How can we prepare people for daily encounters with self-driving cars? How can we keep them safe in the period of great confusion? This project tries to link both service design and speculative design approaches to create a convincing future service scenario.

"The developed service concept is a new operating system feature – a pedestrian mode – which enables the connection between personal devices, autonomous vehicles, and pedestrian crossings. It increases pedestrian visibility to maximum, helps to smoothen the traffic flow and makes pedestrian behaviours predictable.

Using futures thinking methods, the dissertation aims to provoke discussion and thoughts about preferable futures for pedestrians in the age of driverless vehicles."
