Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Statistical data indicate that most road crashes occur due to human errors. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs) are therefore proposed and widely applied to assist drivers to prevent potential collisions and maintain driving safety. Through a safe and appropriate human–machine interface, ADASs can offer necessary information and assistances to drivers and can reduce road fatalities by minimizing human errors.

Normally, sensors and cameras are used in ADASs to detect obstacles or human errors. Recently, the development of emerging technologies (including vehicular communications) makes it easier for vehicles to collect surrounding traffic information, and can offer new possibilities to improve the performance of ADASs.

Therefore, it is essential to provide an insight into the trends and challenges of ADASs. This Special Issue aims to cover all the topics related to ADASs, and welcomes both research and review papers. This Special Issue will focus on (but is not be limited to) the following topics:

  • The development and validation of ADASs
  • Driver’s trust in ADASs
  • Human–machine interfaces and interactions
  • Driver monitoring systems
  • Sensor and camera technologies
  • Vehicular communications
  • Emerging technologies that can be applied in ADASs

The latest advances in car automation present new challenges in vehicle–driver interactions. Indeed, acceptance and adoption of high levels of automation (when full control of the driving task is given to the automated system) are conditioned by human factors such as user trust. In this work, we study the impact of anthropomorphic design on user trust in the context of a highly automated car. A virtual assistant was designed using two levels of anthropomorphic design: “voice-only” and “voice with visual appearance”. The visual appearance was a three-dimensional model, integrated as a hologram in the cockpit of a driving simulator. In a driving simulator study, we compared the three interfaces: two versions of the virtual assistant interface and the baseline interface with no anthropomorphic attributes. We measured trust versus perceived anthropomorphism. We also studied the evolution of trust throughout a range of driving scenarios. We finally analyzed participants’ reaction time to takeover request events. We found a significant correlation between perceived anthropomorphism and trust. However, the three interfaces tested did not significantly differentiate in terms of perceived anthropomorphism while trust converged over time across all our measurements. Finally, we found that the anthropomorphic assistant positively impacts reaction time for one takeover request scenario. We discuss methodological issues and implication for design and further research. Full article
