Safety Concept for Automated Driving
Automated driving system gives the driver an opportunity to perform secondary tasks for a part of their journey. It is seen as a major benefit worldwide, but with this comes the question of safety of the driver and the surrounding environment. Moreover, the misinterpretation of the assisted or automated system as a self-driving vehicle makes the condition worse. Until fully automated vehicle sets foot in the market, there will always be a shared authority of driving tasks between the driver and the automated driving systems.
Hence, the task of ensuring that the driver always remains attentive under these conditions is all the more important. But how can we assess the driver’s alertness and what can we implement to achieve the same?
The whitepaper addresses:
- Underlying issues to tackle for a safer automated driving system
- Effectiveness of camera-based driver monitoring system over the sensor-based driver monitoring system.
- The occurrence of planned and unplanned transitions between humans and automated system and its impact on the driver behaviour
