Human Factors & User Awareness


This session 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 from ongoing research initiatives and international experts will discuss the state-of-the art of Human Factors research for automated vehicles, current design guidelines and evaluation methodologies.
