Background Research and Insights

According to Daimler IT’s requirement, we don’t have to confine our design in the current technical background but further, that is, 10 years, 20 years later. Imagine that time auto-driving technology has matured, citizens have been used to intelligent system, what do they need?

We drew this Territory Map to illustrate our concern.



In this project, we intended to explore the opportunities to enhance the interaction and user experience for users of Daimler. Based on the research we completed before, we found that in these areas Daimler had urgent demand and bright prospect for development.


  1. Big data
  2. User community
  3. Culture exhibition
  4. Future car networking technology
Plenty of news and article predict that self-driving car will be on road by 2020, though some experts state that self-driving cars aren’t ready so soon. We set the background of our project in the future when self-driving technology has become mature enough to provide safe commute for people. In that age, the car is not only a vehicle but a mobile living space where more opportunities for interaction can be explored. We intended to focus our vision in the power of the crowd and Big Data. According to Kevin Kelly, the hive mind, or group mind, is one of the distinct features of the Internet. In the future, with the development of car networking, users would become the content providers and source of information.
