How Will Vehicle Automation Affect the Interaction Between the Vehicles and Other Road Users and What Information is Required to Maintain Vulnerable Road Users Safety
Final Year Project
BUILDING TRUST IN AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES
I am designing a fully autonomous family vehicle, incorporating a system which informs surrounding road users of the vehicle’s intentions. This improves the understanding between such people and the vehicle, therefore helping address common concerns regarding the technology.
The vehicle is designed to feel both familiar and friendly to surrounding road users, whilst safe and secure to the vehicle’s occupants, inspiring confidence within both groups. The system interface itself is minimal to aid intuitiveness and ease of implementation.
