The Science Gallery in Ingolstadt’s city center serves as a platform for public engagement and discussion on important future topics concerning urban development. The exhibition aims to make science tangible and accessible to all, fostering dialogue and promoting social acceptance of automated and networked mobility solutions. The Science Gallery offers the possibility to engage via interactive elements, including a driving simulator and virtual reality experiences of an autonomous shuttle bus interior. As the exhibition will be closed by September 2023, we will provide a 360 ° video demonstration at the conference, allowing participants to experience the Science Gallery virtually. We reflect on and discuss about lessons learned when realizing a physical space for knowledge transfer and feedback encouragement from the local community.
