A prerequisite to foster proliferation of automated driving is common system acceptance. However, different users groups (novice, enthusiasts) decline automation, which could be, in turn, problematic for a successful market launch. We see a feasible solution in the combination of the advantages of manual (autonomy) and automated (increased safety) driving. Hence, we've developed the Hotzenplotz interface, combining possibility-driven design with psychological user needs. A simulator study (N=30) was carried-out to assess user experience with subjective criteria (Need Scale, PANAS/-X, HEMA, AttrakDiff) and quantitative measures (driving behavior, HR/HRV) in different conditions. Our results confirm that pure AD is significantly less able to satisfy user needs compared to manual driving and make people feeling bored/out of control. In contrast, the Hotzenplotz interface has proven to reduce the negative effects of AD. Our implication is that drivers should be provided with different control options to secure acceptance and avoid deskilling.
