Investigation of the Lane Change Behavior in a Driving Simulator
- 11 Downloads
Toward automated driving, the human driving behavior has to be studied exactly. Researchers in the section Human-Robot Interaction of the Delft University of Technology are working together with the driving simulator manufacturer Cruden to achieve an understanding of this behavior during lane changes, with the aim of improving the interaction between the driver and the (semi)-automated vehicle.
Driving simulators as a Safe Testing Environment
Despite the media hype, for the foreseeable future, Autonomous Driving (AD) will not be available for everybody, everywhere and under all conditions. Most automotive companies proceed their portfolio toward AD by developing and deploying increasingly capable Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that support drivers for example in lane keeping (lane keeping assist) and car following (adaptive cruise control). Industry and academia alike study the driving behavior of humans in interaction with AD and ADAS in order to teach, correct or take...
