First minutes in an Audi e-tron with virtual mirrors. My first impression of the driver display and the first lane change.
It does get better, much better, but the first lane change with the virtual mirror is not the easiest task. It can be a stressful experience.
Gap estimation to oncoming traffic can be tricky and I had to wait for an almost empty road before changing lanes, as I couldn't estimate the gap as usual.
Also, my first impression on the driver display wasn't very positive. I would have expected the display to have different angle and pointing more towards the driver.
As I mentioned, you get used to the system after few hours and you can really appreciate the benefits. However, the first few drives could feel very uncomfortable and the driver might feel overwhelmed by the technology. That is the beauty of innovation!
#eyetracking was super useful and many thanks to Scott Hodgins and Jon Ward at Tobii Pro
