Tutorial on In-vehicle auditory interactions: Design and application of auditory displays, speech, sonification, & music

Document Type

Conference Proceeding

Publication Date



This tutorial presents an overview of the in-vehicle auditory interactions, including theoretical background, design considerations, and practical design procedure and guidelines based on the authors' experience in sound design and automotive user interface design, and the Mind Music Machine Lab's research on both topics. The tutorial will be composed of four sessions: auditory menu navigation, speech interactions, music & sonification, and sonic branding. Particularly, in each session hands-on activities will be conducted first and then, a short lecture on the topic will be followed. This tutorial aims to inspire practitioners as well as researchers to appropriately apply auditory displays and sonification to in-vehicle technologies, and thus, facilitate necessary multi-tasking processes in automotive user interfaces.
