Human Factors of Automated Driving
HFAuto generates knowledge on Human Factors of automated driving towards safer road transportation. Human factors expertise of high automated driving are allocated between disciplines and sectors. The project aims to reach a multidisciplinary approach. This Network for Initial Training will train 14 young researchers in HMI design, behavioral research, driver modelling, and traffic flow theory, mentored by leading human-factors scientists in Europe. Through secondments in automotive industry, road safety institutes, and academia, the researchers will gain transferable knowledge of human factors, technology and legal and marketing aspects of highly automated driving.
