Measuring and Predicting Drivers’ Takeover Readiness in Automated Driving
With new advanced vehicle technology, drivers can allow automation to take on parts of the driving task. However, when circumstances dictate, drivers must be able to take back control of the vehicle safely and efficiently. Examining ways of supporting these control transitions is imperative and can help to realize the intended safety benefits of vehicle technology. This technical report summarizes a series of studies and data exercises aimed at examining driver’s readiness at taking over control of the vehicle following periods of automated driving as well as support systems that can help guide driver’s attention during the takeover. The report should be of interest to researchers, the automobile industry who are working in the domain of advanced vehicle technology, and safety advocates.
