I’m thrilled to announce that the theme issue of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing entitled “Automotive user interfaces and interactive applications in the car” is now available in PUC’s Online First. I had the pleasure of serving as co-editor of this theme issue with Albrecht Schmidt, Anind Dey, and Susanne Boll.
The theme issue includes our editorial , and three papers. The first is by Tuomo Kujala, who explores scrolling on touch screens while driving . The second is by Florian Schaub, Markus Hipp, Frank Kargl, and Michael Weber, who address the issue of credibility in the context of automotive navigation systems . The third paper is co-authored by me, my former PhD student Alex Shyrokov, and Peter Heeman. We explore multi-threaded spoken dialogues between a driver and a remote conversant . The three papers were selected in a rigorous review process from 17 submissions, by approximately 50 reviewers.
