The Safety and Human Factors Standards Committee reports to the Driver Perception Steering Committee of the Motor Vehicle Council. The Steering Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining SAE Standards, Recommended Practices, and Information Reports related to the design, operation, and evaluation of the human-machine interface elements in vehicle and infrastructure systems. The Steering Committee considers methods for defining, developing, and evaluating human-machine operating characteristics for advanced vehicle systems and addresses issues of interface design, driver workload, safety, system complexity, ease of use, and the response of drivers to automatic control systems - especially with regard to risk compensation.
The Standards Committee also provides input to the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) Road vehicles technical committee (TC22) subcommittee on Ergonomics applicable to road vehicles (SC13).
Participants in the SAE Safety and Human Factors Standards Committee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government, and other interested parties.
