Many modern vehicles are equipped with a sport mode, which intends to increase drivers' perceived sportiness of the vehicle, via e.g. power-train enhancement (PTE) or engine sound enhancement (ESE). However, to the best of authors' knowledge, no studies are available that investigated the individual or combined effects of PTE and ESE on...

Automated vehicles with conditional driving automation (SAE level 3 (SAE, 2018)) will request the human driver to intervene when reaching its system boundaries by issuing a take-over request (TOR). This study is investigating whether a speech-based auditory take-over request is influencing the time it takes from automated to manual driving,...

Potential usage of the workspace of driving simulators is restricted by a lack of knowledge on oncoming maneuvers, due to the unpredictable nature of human drivers. This research aims to explore the possibility of using information from driver inputs, dynamic vehicle states, and features of the road environment to improve motion cueing through...

The development of automated vehicles on the road is in full swing. As vehicles are getting increasingly automated, the human factor is diminished or eventually removed from automated driving. Until then, a combination of human input and automation is necessary during automated driving. This research focuses on the interaction between humans and...

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) aim to increase safety and reduce mental workload. However, the gap in the understanding of the closed-loop driver-vehicle interaction often leads to reduced user acceptance. In this research, an optimal torque control law is calculated online in the Model Predictive Control (MPC) framework to guarantee...

Driving simulators are widely used for understanding Human-Machine Interaction, driver behavior and driver training. The effectiveness of such simulators in this process depends largely on their ability to generate realistic motion cues. Though the conventional filter-based motion cueing strategies have provided reasonable results, these methods...

Objectives: To examine the driving variables that predict accident probability in mild dementia due to Alzheimer's disease (AD), mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and healthy older control drivers in simulated driving. To compare the three groups in mean performance and in frequency of scores exceeding 1.5 SD from the mean. Methods/Design:...

Despite gaining popularity, the use of Motion Cueing Algorithms (MCAs) based on Model Predictive Control (MPC) remains challenging due to the required tuning of a large number of cost function parameters. This paper investigates the effects of two critical MPC cost function parameters, the lateral specific force and roll rate error weights (Way...

A necessity in driving simulation testing is to understand and attenuate simulator sickness, to reduce the number of undesired drop-outs. Especially urban environments, with its many turns and changes in the velocity profile, are a challenge. This paper describes the motion sickness rating results of a between-subjects experiment (n = 63), which...

van Dintel, Kevin (author)
The arrival of highly automated vehicles introduces a new interaction between the vehicle and driver. System limitations during highly automated driving require the driver to be ready to take back control at request.<br/>Previous studies on the take-over process concluded that the driver requires a transition period to stabilize vehicle control...

Over the past decades, the technological improvements in computing power, software and projection systems enabled driving simulators to become a cost-effective tool to perform research activities and train novel drivers. Today, driving simulators are widely used for studying the interaction of driver and vehicle system, developing new vehicles...

The modern era is witnessing a crucial revolution regarding the driving concept, towards a more assisted and automated way of driving. Despite the advantages such conception have been extensively predicted and supported in literature, a direct transition from manual to fully automated operation is at the current moment not feasible, both for...

Lane change manoeuvres are known to vary widely in lane change duration. This is thought to be an effect of the surrounding vehicles and personal preference of drivers. However, little is known about the effect on steering behaviour during a lane change manoeuvre. Moreover, the relation of the effect of traffic to inter- and intra-driver...

Variable steering systems have the ability to change the ratio between the steering wheel and the front wheels while driving. These adjustable steering systems have led to an improvement in traffic and road safety and decrease in driver’s workload. A previous study concludes that driver steering behaviour is significantly dependent on vehicle...

In motion simulation, motion input scaling is often applied to deal with the limited motion envelopes of motion simulators. In this research, the time-varying effects of scaling the lateral specific force up or down during passive curve driving in a car driving simulation are investigated through a simulator experiment. It is concluded that...

The technological advancements in the automotive industry have enabled the automation of numerous routine driving tasks. As a result, the art of driving has become a control task with a strong supervisory character, including the common human factor issues. Haptic Shared Control has been shown to be useful in keeping the driver in-the-loop by...

Traditional driver-automation interaction trades control over the vehicle back and forth between driver and automation. Haptic shared control offers an alternative by continuously sharing the control through torques on the steering wheel and pedals. When designing additional feedback torques, part of the design choice lies in the stiffness...

The involvement of cyclists in road crashes has not been decreasing with the same magnitude as the involvement of other road users. In particular, the interactions between cyclists and motorized traffic can lead to high-severity crashes. To improve the safety of these interactions, a thorough understanding of road user behaviour is first needed....

This study is the third iteration in a series of studies aimed to develop a system that allows driving blindfolded. We used a sonification approach, where the predicted angular error of the car 2 seconds into the future was translated into spatialized beeping sounds. In a driving simulator experiment, we tested with 20 participants whether a...

Drivers continuously adapt to the different needs and constraints in the driving scene. Literature has provided evidence for two adaptation strategies in response to an increased risk (decreasing the road width or increasing the driving speed) while lane keeping: decreasing driving speed and increasing endpoint arm stiffness. However, so far...
