Abstract: Under highly automated driving, it is possible for drivers to work, entertain and relax in the vehicles. These non-driving related activities bring new challenges in designing interior facilities of highly automated vehicles. It is promising to improve highly automated vehicles’ acceptance and user experience by developing interior facilities based on drivers’ needs. This study adopted an online questionnaire to explore the public requirements on interior facilities of highly automated vehicles in China. Moreover, the needs of different groups were analyzed and compared for a detailed understanding of the effects of various individual characteristics. The results indicated that people expected to communicate with the automated driving systems and were unwilling to lose their right to control the vehicle completely. In addition, individual characteristics significantly affected the requirements. This study contributes to understanding the public requirements on interior facilities and improving the acceptance of highly automated vehicles.
