Full Description:

CAR researchers analyze the impacts of technological dependence on the driving skills and the ability of an operator to resume operation of the vehicle in the event of an automated vehicle (AV) failure or limitation. The findings presented in this work are based on the most recent research on the impact of AV technology on drivers, as well as the most influential studies on this topic performed in the last three decades. Findings include: Drivers who resume manual operation of the vehicle after a period of automated driving perform poorer than do drivers who continuously operate the vehicle manually. Prolonged use of automation may cause a loss of skills and awareness of the state and processes of the vehicle. These evolutions pose a number of challenges to the automotive industry, to regulatory authorities, and to drivers.
