Understanding user needs and behavior in automated vehicles (AVs) while traveling is essential for future in-vehicle interface and service design. Since AVs are not yet market-ready, current knowledge about AV use and perception is based on observations in other transportation modes, interviews, or surveys about the hypothetical situation. In this paper, we close this gap by presenting real-world insights into the attitude towards highly automated driving and non-driving-related activities (NDRAs). Using a Wizard of Oz AV, we conducted a real-world driving study (N = 12) with six rides per participant during multiple days. We provide insights into the users’ perceptions and behavior. We found that (1) the users’ trust a human driver more than a system, (2) safety is the main acceptance factor, and (3) the most popular NDRAs were being idle and the use of the smartphone.
[Paper] “Help, Accident Ahead!”: Using Mixed Reality Environments in Automated Vehicles to Support Occupants After Passive Accident Experiences
Currently, car assistant systems mainly try to prevent accidents. Increasing built-in car technology also extends the potential applications in vehicles. Future cars might have virtual windshields that augment the traffic or individual virtual assistants interacting […]
[Paper] Synergiepotenziale von Virtual City Twins im Bereich automatisiertes Fahren – Beschleunigung der technischen Entwicklung und Überwindung von Akzeptanzbarrieren
Bei der Entwicklung hin zu einer automatisierten und vernetzten Mobilität wird in der (breiteren) Öffentlichkeit oft der Eindruck vermittelt, als sei die Technik bereits so weit fortgeschritten, dass eine problemlose Umsetzung kurzfristig möglich sei. Aktuell […]
Unbiased confidence estimates of neural networks are crucial especially for safety-critical applications. Many methods have been developed to calibrate biased confidence estimates. Though there is a variety of methods for classification, the field of object […]
