To What Extent May Assistance Systems Correct and Prevent ‘Erroneous’ Behaviour of the Driver?
An error in situational recognition may occur while driving a car, and the error can sometimes result in an ‘erroneous’ behaviour of the driver. Whether the driver assistance system can cope with such a circumstance depends on to what extent the authority is given to the system. This paper discusses the need of machine-initiated authority trading from the driver to the assistance system for assuring driver safety. A theoretical framework is also given to describe and analyze the driver’s overtrust in and overreliance on such a driver assistance system.
