The automotive industry faces unprecedented growth in vehicle technologies and features that can dramatically affect the vehicle user experience. This course will provide an overview of principles and techniques for designing and developing vehicle interfaces which deliver optimal solutions while avoiding unintended consequences like driver distraction. Case studies and exercises will be used to identify best practices with key human factors design and research concepts that provide an intuitive, safe and effective user experience. Individuals interested in this topic should consider attending ID# C1341, Developing In-Vehicle Infotainment User Interfaces: Design Principles and Techniques.

The abundance of personal electronic devices is causing a shift in individual expectations of personal mobility. These expectations are conflicting: consumers desire personalization of their devices, but manufacturers strive for commonality; some consumers view personal mobility as a chore, others as an expression of their individuality. We will explore these dichotomies, and discuss the near and mid-term shifts in the expectation of how consumers will perceive personal mobility devices.

Bus and coach drivers spend considerably more time in the vehicle, compared to an average personal car user. However, when it comes to comfort levels, the personal cars, even the inexpensive hatchbacks score much higher than a standard bus. This is because the amount of ergonomic design considerations that go into designing a car’s driver’s workspace is much more than that of the buses. Even when it comes to the standards, cars and vans that fall under M1 category of vehicles have detailed recommendations and standards for individual systems and assembly layout. This is not the case for M3 category of vehicles that is buses. To understand this lacuna, the existing standards and recommendations pertaining directly or remotely to bus driver workspace were studied. It was understood, beyond certain elementary recommendations, there were very few standards available exclusively for buses. In some cases, bus manufacturers are forced to adopt standards pertaining to cars and vans for their buses.

Although many have an idea of what the term “driver distraction” means, there is no common definition within the research community. Additionally, there are many studies that have investigated the topic, but with varying and sometimes conflicting results. What should be made of these discrepancies? This four-hour web seminar will provide an overview of driver distraction (predominantly electronic devices): the problem; how to define it; the current state of research and how to critically evaluate that research to make informed decisions; and the effectiveness of state laws and fleet policies to reduce it.

Dynamic Brake Support (DBS) is a safety system that has been applied to various passenger cars and has been shown to be effective at assisting drivers in avoiding or mitigating rear-end collisions. The objective of a DBS system is to ensure that the brake system is applied quickly and at sufficient pressure when a driver responds to a collision imminent situation. DBS is capable of improving braking response due to a passenger car driver's tendency to utilize multi-stage braking. Interest is developing in using DBS on commercial vehicles. In order to evaluate the possible improvement in safety that could be realized through the use of DBS, driver braking behavior must first be analyzed to confirm that improvement is possible and necessary. To determine if this is the case, a study of the response of truck drivers' braking behavior in collision imminent situations is conducted. This paper presents the method of evaluation and results. Data was drawn from a prior NHTSA simulator study and showed that many drivers exhibited multi-stage braking during four different imminent crash scenarios.

As sensor system proliferate across multiple platforms, particularly with the explosion of Unmanned Intelligence Systems, the desire for interoperability and interchangeability of the sensor systems across multiple platforms and multiple services has grown. This session will address SAE activities in development of standards to support interoperable/interchangeable sensors, the challenges in developing and using the standards and opportunities for future sensor interface definitions.
