UX at 108 KM/H

As UX designers, many of us work to create digital experiences to delight and satisfy users in the very familiar touchpoints of moble and web.
But what happens when you shift the paradigm and replicate that screen-based scenario in a car? How do you enable safe and satisfying experiences for drivers and paasengers, while mitigating the inherent risks that come with driving?
In this session, I’ll share a bit about the process and craft we use in the Car UX team at Volvo to deliver delightful (and safe) UX, inside our vehicles. We’ll look at the principles that guide our design decisions, and explore how principles might also help guide your design work.
