Pascal Jansen, M.Sc.
Pascal Jansen joined the HCI Group in June 2021 as a research associate and PhD student.
Pascal has an M. Sc. in Media Informatics (2021) from Ulm University. The title of the master thesis was: SwiVR-Car-Seat: Utilizing a Motorized Swivel Seat to Explore Effects of Vehicle Motion on Interaction Quality in Virtual Reality Automated Driving. Prior to that, he studied Computer Science at Ulm University and obtained his B. Sc. in 2018.
In 2021, Pascal participated in the German Computer Game Award and was nominated together with his team for the serious game The Social Engineer in the category Young Talent Award: Best Prototype.

SituWare addresses a central obstacle for the introduction of highly automated vehicles (see also BASt) into complex traffic: the required time reserve for a safe transfer of control to the distracted driver. Even environment sensors available in the medium term cannot always guarantee large time reserves. SituWare reduces the takeover time through a targeted, situation-related driver perception adapted driver guidance and enables fluid vehicle behavior with high user acceptance by adapting automation to the driver's situational awareness.
Pascal investigates how handover processes can be made safer and faster by multimodal attention and information guidance.
