Unsettled Topics Concerning Human and Autonomous Vehicle
This report examines the current interaction points between humans and autonomous
systems, with a particular focus on advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS),
the requirements for human-machine interfaces as imposed by human perception,
and finally, the progress being made to close the gap.
Autonomous technology has the potential to benefit personal transportation,
last-mile delivery, logistics, and many other mobility applications enormously.
In many of these applications, the mobility infrastructure is a shared resource
in which all the players must cooperate. In fact, the driving task has been
described as a “tango” where we—as humans—cooperate naturally to enable a robust
transportation system. Can autonomous systems participate in this tango? Does
that even make sense? And if so, how do we make it happen?
