Our research explores the intersection of human behavior and autonomous systems. In the driving simulator, we run experiments to understand how people and vehicles of the future will interact with each other.
The simulator is our primary tool for studies that would be too dangerous to run on the road, or that require careful control over the environment. It is also a testbed for our new speech, haptic, visual and aural interfaces.
Recent studies have focused on transition of control between driver and automated system, driver distraction and engagement, situation awareness, physiological responses, and shared control.
