Abstract

The automotive industry is undergoing a technological revolution with the development of Connected Cars. The empowerment of in-vehicle Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp) does not only shape drivers’ behaviour but is also shaped by the drivers’ psychology. Drawing on academic literature, this paper will show that acceptance and success of UbiComp in the context of the Connected Car is dependent on social norms and behaviours. Major components such as security, privacy and the loss of autonomy need to be taken into account when modelling a Connected Car. In conclusion, the ongoing changes and trends towards connected cars can only be successful if Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) address socio-technological questions to smoothen a social adaptation to the driver and its environment.
