Training Drivers to Automated Vehicles

Let’s face it, this is the 21st Century and cars are changing. With the advent of self-driving technology, drivers need to adapt. The project team proposes to tackle a daunting issue: trust in automation. To that effect, an In Car Mixed Reality Driving Simulator will be used to assess the need to train drivers to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and the tools and methods needed to encourage skeptical drivers of various ages to try and trust automation and self-driving technology.
