Many people spend a long time in vehicles in their daily commute, and they want their health condition to be taken care of during the journey. In line with this need, the advancement of smart technologies brings possibilities for ubiquitous healthcare. This work intends to explore users’ expectations regarding an in-vehicle healthcare system (IVHS) and guide the development of relevant technologies. Four co-design workshops were organized with sixteen participants with diverse professional backgrounds. Over two hundred ideas were generated and categorized into seven groups, indicating seven promising perspectives in developing an IVHS. Furthermore, a conceptual framework was proposed based on the ideas collected from the workshops. The framework organized the ex-pected functions of an IVHS into three groups, namely data collection, commu-nication, and actuation. In combination with the literature review about relevant technologies, the framework pointed out some future research directions.
