DescriptionAs intelligent agents have become more popular at home, they have been progressively introduced into driving environments. Although previous research has discussed agent features and their effects on driver perception and performance, attributes that define in-vehicle agents and distinguish them from other intelligent agents have not been discussed clearly. Thus, we organized a workshop on characterizing and designing in-vehicle intelligent agents at the 13th International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces (AutoUI 2021). In this report, we integrated ideas generated during the workshop and identified user-centered action and autonomy as two attributes that define an agent, with functions and features as specific characteristics to vary agent design. The outcome from this workshop can facilitate in-vehicle intelligent agent design and deliver optimal user experience, while providing insights on manipulating variables in controlled studies.
