Understanding business travel

Industry Partner: Yilu Travel Services GmbH

HCC and Yilu Travel Services GmbH are joining forces in a long-term research collaboration in the intersection of interaction design and transport. Two research activities have been completed so far, both of them focusing on business travelers and door to door smart travel.

The first one was an interview study aimed in exploring how business travelers plan and carry out a business trip, which technologies they use, how do they react on unexpected events, and how do they experience business traveling in general. The second one was a quantitative study that produced a questionnaire in order to validate the findings of the first research activity.

Currently the two research partners are designing future research activities.
