Development and Testing of an In-Vehicle Interface for Use in Automated Driving Contexts

Despite the promise of automated vehicles and the modernization of in-vehicle interfaces, there is not a good understanding as to which design is more appropriate with respect to safety, especially as cars transition between levels of automation (e.g., between level 2 and level 1). As such, the objective of this proposed research is to develop and test an in-vehicle interface for use in automated driving contexts, with a focus on understanding the differences amongst driver groups and on delivering warning messages when the vehicle transitions between levels of automation.
