The Co-Drive situated action within PDC2020 is an intergenerational intervention between elderly people in Rome, Italy, and younger adults in Manizales, Colombia, and vice versa, which consists of experiencing a car journey together through VR and telepresence technologies. We stage a series of Co-Drive journeys as a rehearsal of a possible service enabled by autonomous cars, looking at such technology beyond safe- ty, efficiency and driving functionality. In particular, we aim to probe if autonomous cars could provide a social context for new intergenerational encounters in the shape of a shared car trip. We will set-up the proto- types of the technological equipment both in Manizales and Rome so that people could enact the Co-Drive journey between Colombia and Italy. By rehearsing the experience in-context, we aim to prompt partici- pants to fill the gaps of what the Co-Drive service, as well as automated driving technologies, might be in the future and mean for them.

Abstract

The Co-Drive situated action within PDC2020 is an intergenerational intervention between elderly people in Rome, Italy, and younger adults in Manizales, Colombia, and vice versa, which consists of experiencing a car journey together through VR and telepresence technologies. We stage a series of Co-Drive journeys as a rehearsal of a possible service enabled by autonomous cars, looking at such technology beyond safe- ty, efficiency and driving functionality. In particular, we aim to probe if autonomous cars could provide a social context for new intergenerational encounters in the shape of a shared car trip. We will set-up the proto- types of the technological equipment both in Manizales and Rome so that people could enact the Co-Drive journey between Colombia and Italy. By rehearsing the experience in-context, we aim to prompt partici- pants to fill the gaps of what the Co-Drive service, as well as automated driving technologies, might be in the future and mean for them.
