The increasing reliance on motor vehicles has negative effects on both human health and the environment. Improving driving style has been shown to be a particularly crucial and relatively quick step to reducing fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. In this paper, a series of conceptual designs of in-vehicle gamified interfaces were evaluated, with a particular focus on the ability to use such systems to increase driver acceptance of feedback from such interfaces in order to promote eco-safe driving. Self-determination theory (SDT) was used to inform the design of the gamified interface concepts, with a particular focus on competence, autonomy and relatedness, as well as intrinsic versus extrinsic incentives and social persuasion feedback. The study adopts a user-centered design approach, utilizing focus groups to establish user needs and motivations to aid the design of a prototype system.
