ABSTRACT The future adoption of automated vehicles poses many challenges, with one of the more important being the preservation of control over vehicles that are no longer (fully) operated by drivers. There is consensus that vehicles should not perform actions that are unacceptable to humans. In this paper, we introduce the concept of Meaningful Human Control (MHC) as a function of a framework of the Automated Driving System (ADS). This framework is constructed through the core components that… 
A Conceptual Control System Description of Cooperative and Automated Driving in Mixed Urban Traffic With Meaningful Human Control for Design and Evaluation
TLDR
This article is one of the first to operationalise MHC to such a level of detail and opens the door to further development of the concept for technological implementation.
Realising Meaningful Human Control Over Automated Driving Systems: A Multidisciplinary Approach
TLDR
A framework to realise “meaningful human control” over Automated Driving Systems is presented and it is shown how the evaluation cascade table can be applied in concrete engineering use cases in combination with the definition of core components to expose deficiencies in traceability, thereby avoiding so-called responsibility gaps.
How to ensure control of cooperative vehicle and truck platoons using Meaningful Human Control
TLDR
It is concluded that current advances are making progress, but that from a MHC perspective, issues still remain for the operational and tactical implementation of truck platoons and cooperative driving that need to be addressed in regard to ODDs and drivers.
Human behaviour with automated driving systems: a quantitative framework for meaningful human control
TLDR
The concept of ‘meaningful human control’ is introduced to better address the challenges raised by ADS, and a new framework of human control over ADS is presented by means of literature-based categorisation that offers a unique, quantified perspective into the effects of ADS on human behaviour.
Delft University of Technology A practitioner’s View of Driver Training for automated driving From Driving Examiners: A Focus group Discussion
TLDR
The concept of meaningful human control (MHC) as an integral part of the discussion lead to consensual findings regarding ADAS functionality and the drivers' tasks, as well as discussion topics on driver training and levels of automation.

Meaningful human control: actionable properties for AI system development
How can humans remain in control of artificial intelligence (AI)-based systems designed to perform tasks autonomously? Such systems are increasingly ubiquitous, creating benefits - but also
Meaningful human control over AI systems: beyond talking the talk
TLDR
This paper argues these four properties are necessary for AI systems under meaningful human control, and provides possible directions to incorporate them into practice, and illustrates these properties with two use cases, automated vehicle and AI-based hiring.

TLDR
In order to provide an overall perspective on how technology is converging towards vehicles with autonomous capabilities, advances have been classified into driver centric, network centric and vehicle centric.
Gaps in the Control of Automated Vehicles on Roads
TLDR
A potential discrepancy in AV control is suggested with the review of recently documented accidents involving AV’s and the identification of a gap in control is performed using a recently formulated moral philosophical framework of Meaningful Human Control.

TLDR
Potential individual differences -- classified into dispositions, stable traits, operator state, attitudes and demographics -- that could influence the human performance in interactions with automation are discussed.

TLDR
It was shown that self-paced transitions could reduce the risk of accidents near the edge of the operational design domain and vehicle manufacturers must consider these benefits when designing contemporary systems.

TLDR
There are also potential problems to be expected, since the task of driving a ordinary motor vehicle is changing in nature, in the direction of supervising a (partly) automated moving vehicle.
