Consumers expect mature products such as cars to provide value in addition to conventional features such as safety and usability. Hence, introducing methods to evaluate consumer perceptions of the worth of new features during the design process benefits manufacturers. Consequently, increasing attention has been recently focused on user experience (UX). This project examined three aspects of UX, namely, the “desire to try using” during an encounter, the “goodness of using,” and the “desire to continue to use” after the initial usage. Then, a method for introducing these aspects into the product design process was developed. Thus, the factors that influence user desire to continue the product usage were obtained. The relation between the user requirements and the design elements was examined, and a method that quantitatively evaluates user desires based on the design elements during the design process was proposed. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2017.

— The smart key is part of a computerized system that uses microchips and sensors to automatically unlock the doors and start the vehicle without the use of a key. The key is identified through the antennas in the vehicle’s bodywork and a radio pulse generator in the key housing. The vehicle is automatically unlocked when the button for the sensor on the door handle or trunk release is pressed. Vehicles with a smart key system have a mechanical backup, usually in the form of a spare key blade supplied with the vehicle. Smart key is on the rise, as the agenda of the government remains to push the OEMs into paying detailed attention to flaws identified by the researchers with respect to the vehicle security. Read more details of the report at Orbis Research Technological advancements along with the demand for convenient premium features are the key factors driving the growth of automotive smart key market. In addition, vehicle security regulations and consumer awareness about sophisticated vehicle security features are expected to drive the demand for these systems during the forecast period.

Most of the traffic accidents have been caused by driver's inattention. Therefore, driver monitoring is one of the most important challenges in order to prevent traffic accidents. Some studies for evaluating mental workload during driving have been reported; however driver's mental state should be estimated quantitatively for the future. This paper proposes an estimation method of driver's mental workload using physiological information. We defined mental workload as NASA-TLX score, and used the multiple linear regression to quantify driver's mental workload. As a result, higher accuracy was achieved by considering driver's aggression. ©2010 IEEE.
