This paper describes the development of the concept of a mood adaptive media player for in-car entertainment. The concept focuses on two aspects: the characterization of music with respect to its mood and the design of a user interface which allows an easy operation of the media player, suitable for use in a car. The media player was implemented in a prototype environment to prove the feasibility.
