  1. 1. The automation effect: Investigating factors that influence the driver response process in a safety-relevant event during assisted driving and after unsupervised automation

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Linda Pipkorn; [2020]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; automated driving; driver response; response process; automation; driver behaviour; take over; driving performance; test track;

    Abstract : Introduction: Safe vehicle automation can be achieved through a detailed understanding of drivers’ ability to respond to a safety-relevant event after a period of automated driving. For instance, there is a need to understand in which scenarios automation effects are present (e.g. delayed response, degraded driving performance, crashing). READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploiting individual wheel actuators to enhance vehicle dynamics and safety in electric vehicles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Abstract : This thesis is focused on individual wheel actuators in road vehicles intended for vehicle motion control. Particular attention is paid to electro-mechanical actuators and how they can contribute to improving vehicle dynamics and safety. READ MORE

  3. 3. Traffic Situation Management for Driving Automation of Articulated Heavy Road Transports - From driver behaviour towards highway autopilot

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Peter Nilsson; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; driver model; driving simulator; driving principles; driving automation; vehicle model; articulated heavy-vehicles; vehicle dynamics; long combination vehicles;

    Abstract : In this thesis traffic situation management for driving automation of long combination vehicles is discussed. The automation targets high-speed driving in multiple-lane, one-way roads. Traffic situation predictions, traffic situation manoeuvres and driving principles are studied specifically. READ MORE

  4. 4. Visual response to attentional demand in increasing levels of automation: A situated approach

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Alberto Morando; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; real-world driving; naturalistic data; human factors; automation; visual behavior; driving demand; Attention;

    Abstract : Introduction: Adaptive cruise control (ACC) is a system that automates the longitudinal control of the vehicle, and maintains safety margins to a lead vehicle. ACC has been shown to have positive safety effects in reducing the exposure to critical situations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Drivers’ response to attentional demand in automated driving

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Alberto Morando; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vehicle automation; naturalistic data; human factors.; driving simulator data; visual behavior; response process; Attention;

    Abstract : Vehicle automation can make driving safer; it can compensate for human impairments that are recognized as the leading cause of crashes. Vehicle automation has become a central topic in transportation and human factors research. READ MORE
