Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka det framtida användandet av instrumentpanelen i autonoma personbilar. En lösning presenteras där interiören liknar en tågkupé med säten vända mot varandra kring den nya instrumentpanelen utformad som ett multifunktionellt bord. Genom att undersöka vad konsumenter från fyra olika målgrupper ville sysselsätta sig med i en nivå fem autonom personbil kunde funktioner såsom bildskärmar, tangentbord och förvaringsmöjligheter inkluderas i den nya instrumentpanelen.   För insamling av empiri användes både kvalitativa och kvantitativa metoder där semistrukturerade intervjuer och en enkätundersökning genomfördes. Båda metoderna riktade sig till fyra målgrupper av konsumenter: Studenter, barnfamiljer, kortvägspendlare samt resande säljare. För att samla in mycket information på kort tid utfördes metoderna samtidigt och båda metoderna användes för att validera resultatet.   Genom analysen av empirin hittades gemensamma intressen mellan målgrupperna, i båda metoderna, och sammanställde dessa till kundönskemål. Resultatet av analysen visar bland annat att passagerare i autonoma fordon vill ha bra möjligheter till att arbeta, lyssna på musik, docka telefon, laptop eller surfplatta till inbyggda skärmar i bilen samt läsa och skriva email. Det önskas hållare för drycker, avlastningsytor för mat samt kyld förvaring.   Intervjuer med experter från branschen genomfördes för att bistå med utformning- och säkerhetskrav som tillsammans med kundönskemålen gav ett underlag för att generera koncept. Innan konceptegenereringsfasen påbörjades gjordes en brainstorming för att diskutera tekniska lösningar till de framtagna önskemålen. De framtagna koncepten utvärderades med metoden för Pughs konceptvalsmatris där de mättes mot ett referenskoncept. Ett vinnande koncept kunde efter förbättringar utses och presenteras med skisser, produktbeskrivning samt en produktspecifikation.  Arbetet begränsades till att fokusera på att uppfylla kundönskemålen och lämnar många krav runt säkerhet åt framtida vidareutveckling av konceptet.   

Abstract [en]

Contents of this bachelor’s thesis are written in Swedish.  The purpose of this study was to investigate the future use of the instrument panel in autonomous cars. A solution is presented in which the interior resembles a train compartment with seats facing each other around the new instrument panel designed as a multifunctional table. By examining what consumers from four different target groups would want to engage themselves with in a level five autonomous car, features such as monitors, keyboards and storage facilities was included in the new instrument panel.  For the gathering of empirical data, qualitative and quantitative methods was used, where both semi-structured interviews and a survey was conducted. Both methods addressed four target groups of consumers: students, families with children, short-distance commuters and traveling salespersons. To collect much information in a short period of time, the methods were performed simultaneously and both methods were used to validate the result.  The empirical analysis found common interests between the target groups, in both methods and compiled these into customer requests. The result of the analysis shows, among other things, that passengers in autonomous cars want good opportunities to work, listen to music, dock their phone, laptop or tablet too built-in monitors in the car as well as read and write email. They desired holder for drinks, relief surfaces when eating food as well as refrigerated storage.  Interviews with industry experts were conducted to complement with design and safety requirements that, together with customer requests, provided a basis for generating concepts. Before the start of the concept generating phase, a brainstorming was conducted to discuss technical solutions to the desired customer requests. The final concepts were evaluated using the method of Pugh Concept Selection, where they were compared against a reference concept. A winning concept was, after improvements, presented with sketches, product description and a product specification.  The work was limited to focusing on meeting customer requests and leaving many requirements for personal safety to future, further development of the concept.
