Automated vehicles have the potential to improve safety and mobility. At lower levels of automation (Level 2), drivers are required to supervise the automation and be prepared to intervene as needed to maintain safety. The consequences of these technologies on driver behavior are not yet fully understood, especially as real-world testing has been less common in research studies.

The current study sought to evaluate how drivers respond and adapt to vehicle automation systems in real-world scenarios. Drivers with no prior experience with vehicle automation were exposed to different experimental protocols and measurements, including several weeks of driving exposure in real-world settings.
