Sustainability has become one of the key factors for car manufacturers worldwide. Electric vehicles (EVs) are clean, quiet, efficient, and offer a great opportunity to keep our environment healthy. High effort has been put into new technologies, materials and infrastructure. Though, little research has been done on in-vehicle information systems (IVIS) to fit the needs of EV drivers. We will discuss how electric vehicle information systems (EVIS) and car interiors can be designed to meet challenges inherent in the development process of electric vehicles like e.g. range anxiety, energy recovery/recharging or automated driving. The goal of the workshop will be a summary of the Grand Challenges of EVIS.
We consider electric vehicle information systems (EVIS) as an inclusive term that encompasses encounters and intersections between interior design and information system design. In this respect, we invite papers that present and discuss novel contributions to electric vehicle user interfaces both on a practical and theoretical level and that further our understanding of the field through case studies, design approaches, and best practices.
