INTERESTING press release landed in my inbox from the the University of Southampton. They want to understand people’s perceptions of automated vehicles.
Participants are being asked to view a series of four to five second videos of a car making lane changes, while driving down the motorway, and to decide whether it is being driven by a human driver or a computer. The driverless car is a white Tesla Model S.
If you want to take part in the survey, it will take 10 minutes. You can do it from your desktop or from your mobile phone.
To take part, you must have more experience than just an X-Box. What’s required is a full driving licence with at least a year’s driving experience.
Professor Neville Stanton, from the University’s Transportation Research Group, is leading the study.
He had this to say : “The study will help us to understand the effect of new vehicle automated systems on driving behaviour and cognitive abilities. We hope that the results will help to detect potential problems before the automated systems are launched on the market.”
The research is part of the ‘Human Factors for automated driving’ (HFAuto, http://hf-auto.eu) project, which is funded by the European Commission. It involves European industrial and academic partners to investigate relevant issues and questions that the implementation of highly automated vehicles will pose to society.
