Human-Machine Collaborations for Sensible Automated Driving

[Speaker] Inagaki, Toshiyuki:1

Technological advancement raises expectations of the society for automated driving. Nowadays smart machines can sense and analyze situations, decide what must be done, and implement control actions. Such smart machines can bring various benefits in mobility, environmental sustainability, traffic efficiency, and road safety. It should be noted, however, that automation has negative sides, as we have learnt through accidents of advanced glass-cockpit aircraft. Examples of the negative sides of automation include complacency, loss of situation awareness, overtrust in and overreliance on automation, and automation surprises. This talk discusses the following issues for designing sensible automated driving systems: (1) levels of automated driving and their comparison from human factors points of view, (2) requirements on design of human-machine interface, and (3) sharing and trading of authority between the driver and automation for driving safety.
