    Abstract

    Autonomous vehicles have the potential to radically change the way we use and interact with our cars. Current thinking assumes that drivers will engage in non-driving tasks and, accordingly, future vehicle design may look dramatically different. However, the use cases envisaged are also known to exacerbate the incidence and severity of carsickness. This paper will discuss these scenarios with reference to the aetiology of carsickness and suggest design constraints to facilitate acceptable future autonomous vehicle design.
