Nowadays, automotive user interface research strives towards investigating automated vehicles. To test user concepts, especially pertaining to fully automated vehicles, several methods are evolving, such as Virtual Reality studies, simulator studies, or Wizard-of- Oz experiments. In all of these methods, researchers need to find an appropriate driving environment which is often created through a driving simulator or a real-life driving video. There is a lack of tools which give researchers the opportunity to rapidly create prototypes for their evaluation. To solve this issue for the case of investigating interactions with windshield displays and dashboards, we design a tool that can be used to support these studies and interfaces in various context. The experimenter can develop a virtual user interface through our platform. The interface can be deployed either in a lab setting where the driving context is provided through simulation or recorded driving videos, or it can be easily deployed in a Wizardof- Oz car. In this position paper, we present the framework of the tool and foster the discussion for such an idea and its use cases.
