Delivery timing and modality of system state information to support occupant understanding of ADS functionality

As much as good HMI design within overall system design precludes the need for extra training requirements for operators, the reality is that training will play a critical role as the driving public faces the technology shift that is currently underway with ever-increasing, and potentially diverse, implementations of, automated functions. The need for training will exist for first time purchasers of the vehicle with advanced technologies, but also for the secondary market. There is need for exploring the knowledge gaps and required skills that training could improve, and how that training could be delivered appropriately over the vehicle lifecycle. This project will look at embedded training that delivers knowledge and skill to the driver/occupant, exploring delivery timing and modality of system state and other information that can build the driver/occupant's understanding of ADS functionality, and also improve skill at performing supervisory tasks while remaining engaged.
