Zombies on the road: A holistic design approach to balancing gamification and safe driving
Steinberger, Fabius, Schroeter, Ronald, Lindner, Verena, Fitz-Walter, Zachary, Hall, Joshua, & Johnson, Daniel M. (2015) Zombies on the road: A holistic design approach to balancing gamification and safe driving. In Proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications, Association for Computing Machinery, Nottingham, UK, pp. 320-327.
This paper explores novel driving experiences that make use of gamification and augmented reality in the car. We discuss our design considerations, which are grounded in road safety psychology and video game design theory. We aim to address the tension between safe driving practices and player engagement. Specifically, we propose a holistic, iterative thinking process inspired by game design cognition and share our insights generated through the application of this process. We present preliminary game concepts that blend digital components with physical elements from the driving environment. We further highlight how this design process helped us to iteratively evolve these concepts towards being safer while maintaining fun. These insights and game design cognition itself will be useful to the AutomotiveUI community investigating similar novel driving experiences.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
