Abstract / Description of output

Aggressive driving behavior has been proven to be one of the major contributors to road accidents. Traditional solutions to leverage aggressive driving behavior still have some obvious short comings such as low user experience and unsatisfactory effectiveness. This article explores user-friendly design method for intervening aggressive driving behavior based on human-centered motivation theory such as persuasive technology. We proposed an interactively affective system based on design ethnography and persuasive technology that offered drivers an emotional mediator and allowed them to express their feelings in a natural way that does not affect traffic. We validated our design and system in a driving simulating environment with 16 participants, results showed that our system could promote drivers emotional state effectively. Our system have broad application prospect such as traffic safety, driver health, intelligent cockpit human-vehicle interaction.
