Human Factors & User awareness
The session on Human Factors and User Awareness addresses challenges associated with the introduction of automated vehicles in mixed traffic environments, and outlines current progress as well as future research needs. Fundamental Human Factors challenges are to ensure safety, ease of use, trust, acceptance and comfort, for users/passengers of automated vehicles. Likewise, a safe and acceptable interaction with other road users including pedestrians and cyclists needs to be established. In the session researchers and industrial representatives discuss the international state-of-the art of Human Factors and User Awareness research for automated vehicles, current design guidelines and evaluation methodologies. In the second part of the session, the audience is invited to actively discuss the latest Human Factors and User Awareness statements of the CARTRE project.
