Designers and design researchers at London’s Royal College of Art (RCA) have developed a prototype soft robotic steering wheel designed to make the work of steering easier. Many tech companies have been focusing on developing tools for autonomous driving, such as software that anticipates human reactions and a steering wheel that integrates gesture controls. Yet, few have stopped to consider the well-being of the driver. The RCA designers began by conducting studies of Uber drivers. They found that the drivers’ mental health often suffered from their isolation and the need to concentrate on passengers, their GPS, the Uber app and the road all at the same time.
