With the growing technological advances in autonomous driving, the transport industry and research community seek to determine the impact that autonomous vehicles (AV) will have on consumers, as well as identify the different factors that will influence their use. Most of the research performed so far relies on laboratory-controlled conditions using driving simulators, as they offer a safe environment for testing advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS). In this study we analyze the behavior…

Real-World Evaluation of the Impact of Automated Driving System Technology on Driver Gaze Behavior, Reaction Time and Trust

Results from the performed experiments showed that driver reaction time to a TOR, gaze behavior and self-reported trust in automation were affected by the type of NDRT being concurrently performed andDriver reaction time and gaze behavior additionally depended on the driving or vehicle speed at the time of TOR.

Automated Driving: A Literature Review of the Take over Request in Conditional Automation

This paper summarizes and analyzes previously published works in the field of conditional automation and the TOR process, and compiles guidelines and standards related to automation in driving and highlights the research gaps that need to be addressed in future research.

The Design and Integration of a Comprehensive Measurement System to Assess Trust in Automated Driving

A novel measurement system was integrated into a Tesla Model X to assess different automated functions and their effects on trust and performance in real-world driving and can be used to model user trust behaviors in realistic on-road conditions.

Analysis of the Battery Energy Estimation Model in SUMO Compared with Actual Analysis of Battery Energy Consumption

Electric vehicles (EVs) are considered a key alternative transportation for improving energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions in the traffic sector. To promote the use of these vehicles a

Evaluation of Imminent Take-Over Requests With Real Automation on a Test Track.

Investigating take-over, driving, non-driving related task (NDRT) performance, and trust of conditionally automated vehicles (AVs) in critical transitions on a test track confirms that take-overs are mainly influenced by visual-cognitive load, while physical load did not significantly affect responses.



Automated Driving: Interactive Automation Control System to Enhance Situational Awareness in Conditional Automation

This work presents the Interactive Automation Control System (IACS), a system to assist the driver when their takeover is required, and evaluates the system's performance during a situation in which the automation has not been defined to operate and study its impact on the overall driving performance.

Highly Automated Driving, Secondary Task Performance, and Driver State

Highly automated driving did not have a deleterious effect on driver performance, when attention was not diverted to the distracting secondary task.

Cost-efficient driver state and road conditions monitoring system for conditional automation

A cost-efficient, context-aware system, based on smartphones, which supports the driver in the driving task through monitoring the driver attention and drowsiness, in addition to detecting pedestrians and vehicles.

Driver Capability Monitoring in Highly Automated Driving: From State to Capability Monitoring

An architecture for capturing the driver state and behavior inside the vehicle is presented and this system is used to predict the collision probability in the situation where drivers resolve the TOR doing a keep lane maneuver (KLM) and brake to avoid the collision.

Situational Awareness, Drivers Trust in Automated Driving Systems and Secondary Task Performance

This research was supported in part by the Automotive Research Center (ARC) at the University of Michigan, with funding from government contract Department of the Army W56HZV-14-2-0001 through the U.

Automatic and manual driving paradigms: Cost-efficient mobile application for the assessment of driver inattentiveness and detection of road conditions

A cost effective mobile application to measure gaze behavior and analyze road conditions for a request to take vehicle's control in case of an automatic driving or to avoid inattentive driving in a manual driving paradigm is presented.

3D driving simulator with VANET capabilities to assess cooperative systems: 3DSimVanet

A flexible and adjustable 3-dimensional driving simulator based on Open-StreetMap data that integrates Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) communication capabilities to assess different information paradigms in a lab-controlled environment is presented.

Use Patterns Among Early Adopters of Adaptive Cruise Control

Investigation of use patterns among early adopters of adaptive cruise control suggested safety consequences with ACC may be more prevalent in some driver groups than others, and the findings suggest that these safety implications are related to trust in automation, driving styles, understanding of system operations, and personalities.

Evaluation on Diversity of Drivers’ Cognitive Stress Response using EEG and ECG Signals during Real-Traffic Experiment with an Electric Vehicle *
