People don’t trust driverless cars. Researchers are trying to change that

People don’t trust driverless cars. Researchers are trying to change that This October, television and web viewers were treated to an advertisement featuring basketball star LeBron James taking a ride in a driverless car. At first, James—known for his fearlessness on the court—peers in doubtfully at the vacant driver's seat and declares: "Nope." But after a short trip in the back seat, he has changed his tune. "Hey yo, I'm keepin' this!" James exclaims to friends. The ad, from computer chip–maker Intel in Santa Clara, California,... [Lire la suite]

Human Factors in Automated Driving

Human Factors in Automated Driving   Automated driving will fundamentally change road transportation. But the role of humans and human-system interaction need to be clearly established to ensure a smooth ride. Automated driving technology has the potential to fundamentally change road transportation and improve quality of life. If set on the right track, automated vehicles (AVs) could reduce accidents caused by human errors, increase traffic flow efficiency, increase comfort by allowing the driver to perform alternative...

Human factors

Human factors As more ADAS functions are added to vehicles, the need to test them grows, but much of this will be done in the virtual sphere using driver-in-the-loop simulations The increase in ADAS systems is puttingpressure on testing engineers to make sure that the technologies are robust. As in many areas of vehicle and technology development, physical testing is becoming more time-consuming, which is at odds with the need to reduce the length of programmes. That is why even ADAS systems are benefiting from the use of... [Lire la suite]

Automotive Technology and Human Factors Research: Past, Present, and Future

Automotive Technology and Human Factors Research: Past, Present, and Future This paper reviews the history of automotive technology development and human factors research, largely by decade, since the inception of the automobile. The human factors aspects were classified into primary driving task aspects (controls, displays, and visibility), driver workspace (seating and packaging, vibration, comfort, and climate), driver’s condition (fatigue and impairment), crash injury, advanced driver-assistance systems, external communication...

IMPLEMENTING HUMAN FACTORS WITHIN THE DESIGN PROCESS OF ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS (ADAS)

IMPLEMENTING HUMAN FACTORS WITHIN THE DESIGN PROCESS OF ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS (ADAS) The emerging trend in driver support systems is aimed at reducing requirements placed on the driver. By equipping vehicles with sensors, navigation and motion planning, the driving task is shared between human actors and the supporting assistance systems. Ultimately, by adding and improving cognition and control techniques, this could lead to autonomous vehicles in which the driving task is controlled by the vehicle and the... [Lire la suite]

Driverless cars: Don’t ignore the human factor

Driverless cars: Don’t ignore the human factor Tesla Motors has announced what is thought to be the first fatal accident in one of its electric, self-driving cars that was under its own control. Details are unclear, Tesla said the accident happened on a divided highway when a tractor trailer, or articulated lorry, drove across the highway “perpendicular to” the car and continued. “Neither Autopilot nor the driver noticed the white side of the tractor trailer against a brightly lit sky, so the brake was not applied”, reports say. ...
