A Human Factors Perspective on Automated Driving

A Human Factors Perspective on Automated Driving Automated driving can fundamentally change road transportation and improve quality of life. However, at present, the role of humans in automated vehicles (AVs) is not clearly established. Interviews were conducted in April and May 2015 with twelve expert researchers in the field of Human Factors (HF) of automated driving to identify commonalities and distinctive perspectives regarding HF challenges in the development of AVs. The experts indicated that an AV up to SAE Level 4 should... [Lire la suite]

Methodologies to assess usability and safety of ADAS and automated vehicle

Methodologies to assess usability and safety of ADAS and automated vehicle In the framework of future innovation and for the sake of road safety, there is a great hope in fully supporting, or even replacing, the human driver by reliable technology. But, due to the novelty of this context, an important care will have to be devoted to investigate drivers' expectation, needs, behavior and functional abilities to reach this goal. In this context, this paper reviews several human factors issues related to partial and fully automated... [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...

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

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]
