Human Interaction with Automated Vehicles

Human Interaction with Automated Vehicles

This is a multi-year project funded by an NSERC CREATE and other sources of funding.  We are looking at issues of trust with automated vehicles.  How well do drivers of current automated vehicles trust their (imperfect) automation?  When automated vehicles are more ubiquitous, how will other road users interact with these vehicles?  To what degree should an automated vehicle communicate its intent?
