At this year’s Innovation Marketplace at the House of Logistics and Mobility (HOLM), Andreas Grzesiek and Ken Rodenwaldt presented the results of our two HOLM projects. The “EmotDes” project focused on the emotions experienced during a visit to a S-Bahn station and the question of what influence design has on this. The project “AI Trust” dealt with the question of whether the design of the interaction between humans and AI can strengthen trust in autonomous vehicles. In both projects, work with virtual reality played a major role: test subjects waited while standing and sitting in a virtual S-Bahn station or reacted as passengers of an autonomous shuttle to a simulated hazard braking of the vehicle. Following the presentations, there was a lot of interest and exciting conversations!

Both projects (HA project no. 1015/21-17 and 1014/21-16) were funded by the State of Hesse and HOLM funding as part of the “Innovations in Logistics and Mobility” measure of the Hessian Ministry of Economics, Energy, Transport and Housing.
