4 Nov 2021 - CIECA WEBINAR - Impact and challenges of automation on driver training and testing

Presenter: Christina Gögel, Technische Universität Dresden, "Friedrich List" Faculty of Transportation and Traffic Sciences, Traffic and Transportation Psychology (Germany)

Given the technological development in recent years, the number of cars equipped with automated assistance systems is increasing. Depending on the level of driving automation implemented within the car, the driving task changes accordingly. For example, with partial automation (SAE Level 2), drivers are required to monitor traffic and intervene in case of critical events, whereas with conditional automation (SAE Level 3) drivers can attend non-driving activities but must be prepared to take-over driving after an automated request. Given these changes in the driving task, the skills and knowledge needed for driving are changing as well. Consequently, the question arises if and how drivers should receive training to understand these new skills and knowledge.

As of today, education on automated systems is often not a mandatory part of driver training. Based on a literature review, this contribution presents insights from recent (2017 – 2021) scientific publications on methods, contents and effectiveness of driver training for automated driving systems Level 2 and 3. Furthermore, this contribution highlights open questions and gives recommendations on future steps for the integration of automated driving in driver training and testing.
