Objective Measures of Design Typicality That Predict Aesthetic Liking, Fluency, and Car Sales

We introduce objective measures of design typicality and demonstrate their capability of capturing subjective typicality experiences in the context of car designs. Findings show that the proposed objective approaches provide convenient means to easily assess design typicality.
