AUTO

A personalized autonomous driving experience

How will your life change with self-driving cars?

By 2021, we could have fully autonomous vehicles. As more automakers race to produce fully autonomous cars, many questions exist about the impact they will have. Auto is an interactive, multimedia experience designed to immerse users in a personalized narrative about their futures with autonomous vehicles.

We design user experiences in 3 simple steps

Personalization

Answer a few questions so we can get to know you better. Based on your input, we’ll give you a sneak peak into a future with autonomous vehicles that is custom-tailored to you.

Immersion

Get lost in your new life. See how autonomous cars have changed your work day, family life, or even a night out on the town.

Sharing

Share your experience on your favorite social media platforms and find out how your friend’s futures compare.

  • Technology

    The first thing Auto does is present a form with personal questions to users. By using Javascript, Auto takes the user’s responses and generates a customized multimedia experience of their future with autonomous vehicles. Based on the scores assigned to each variable that they choose, a custom experience is given to the user, enabling a unique multi-platform immersion for every user.

  • Design

    The experience includes multimedia content such as photos, videos and audio to let the future of autonomous vehicles unfold in front of the user as well. At the end of the experience, the user has the opportunity to share their personal experience on social media for a wider audience to view and try out for themselves.
