Abstrakti

The goal of this article is to deepen the concept of emerging urban mobility technology using aesthetics of everyday mobility as a lens for bringing in important experiential and value-driven dimensions. Drawing on philosophical everyday and urban aesthetics, as well as the postphenomenological strand in the philosophy of technology, we explicate the relation between everyday aesthetic experience and urban mobility. By doing this, we shed light on the central role of aesthetics for providing depth to the multidimensional meaning of contemporary urban mobility. We use the example of self-driving vehicle (SDV), as potentially mundane, public, dynamic, and social urban robots, for expanding the range of perspectives relevant for understanding urban mobility technology. We present the range of existing SDV conceptualizations and contrast them with aesthetic and experiential understanding of urban mobility. In conclusion, we reflect on new pathways for speculative thinking about urban mobility futures and development of responsible innovation processes.
