Abstract [en]

Shift-by -wire technology enables new gear shifter designs in cars. Highly innovative gear shifter designs might confuse drivers and have a negative impact on usability. However, new designs might also be more intuitive and easy to use. The purpose of the study was to identify possible usability profits and concerns with different types of gear shifters with shift-by -wire technology during natural interaction, as in a car rental scenario. Four gear shifter types were tested: a button, rotary, joystick, and a stalk shifter, from a usability perspective. The joystick shifter was the most preferred shifter, it felt familiar. The button shifter was the easiest to understand and use. The rotary shifter had also high ease of use apart from one task, the activation of the manual driving mode. The stalk shifter was the least preferred and also the most difficult to use
