Methods to Transfer System Knowledge to Driver/ Operators to Enhance and/or Accelerate Situation Awareness During Handoff

In situations when automated driving systems (ADS) break down, and control needs to be either handed over to the driver or when the minimal risk condition must be automatically achieved, the ADS sensors and algorithms were aware of things (hazards, potential hazards, conditions, etc.) that could or should be communicated to the driver/occupant. Research in this area would include determining the kinds of information drivers/operators/ADSs may need or find useful regarding other road user behavior, different approaches to presenting road user intention, and evaluating these approaches and determining through industry collaboration which are potentially most effective.
