“Do we still need to consider Human Factors? –The challenges regarding human-vehicle interactions for automated vehicles”  by Anna Schieben (DLR)

In her talk Anna Schieben address the question if and how Human Factors research can improve the overall quality of human-vehicle interaction for automated vehicles. This talk is based on the results of the intensive discussions within the Human Factors group of the VRA project. In the presentation she gives several examples on Human Factors research questions that need to be considered when talking about automated vehicles and human performance. Additionally, the talk gives an overview on challenges and potential interaction design solutions a) for the driver-vehicle interaction and b) for the interaction of the automated vehicle with other traffic participants by presenting examples of national and EU-funded projects (AdaptIVe, Holides and CityMobil2).
