This contribution provides a review of fundamental goals, development and future perspectives of driver assistance systems. Mobility is a fundamental desire of mankind. Virtually any society strives for safe and efficient mobility at low ecological and economic costs. Nevertheless, its technical implementation significantly differs among societies,(More)
To minimize the mental workload for the driver and to keep the increasing amount of information easily accessible, sophisticated display and interaction techniques are essential. This contribution focuses on a user-centered analysis for an authoritative grading of head-up displays (HUDs) in cars. Two studies delivered the evaluation data. In a field test,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to quantify the impact of traffic density and verbal tasks on takeover performance in highly automated driving. BACKGROUND In highly automated vehicles, the driver has to occasionally take over vehicle control when approaching system limits. To ensure safety, the ability of the driver to regain control of the driving(More)
Modeling and predicting human behavior is indispensable when industrial robots interacting with human operators are to be manipulated safely and efficiently. One challenge is that human operators tend to follow different motion patterns, depending on their intention and the structure of the environment. This precludes the use of classical estimation(More)
The aim of this study is to find out if hand gestures can reasonably be used to control in-car devices. Therefore, a set of consistent gestures which allow intuitive human machine interaction is searched. The results show a consistent gesture vocabulary for a variety of devices. Since this study is extremely dependent on its environment, in this paper(More)
In this study, the haptical and gestural user input modes are compared with regard to distraction from a controlling task similar to steering a car. The examination is carried out in a driving-simulation laboratory. While performing the controlling task permanently, the test subject has to execute a variety of user input with a given modality. Haptical(More)
In SpeechDat-Car, speech databases for speech driven devices and services for mobile environments are collected for nine European languages. The German SpeechDat-Car installation was the first fully equipped platform within the project. It has served as a testbed for the recording software for the entire project, and as an opportunity to perform technical(More)
