Accessible Automated Automotive Workshop Series – Focus External Human-Machine Interfaces. *In conjunction with MuC 2022
Automated Vehicles (AVs): Vehicles that provide some level of automation, thereby reducing the effort of the human driver for the primary driving task. In this workshop, we focus on AVs that do not need an attentive driver at all times, thus SAE Levels 3 and above.
Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs): Non-motorized road users, such as pedestrians and cyclists, motorcyclists, and persons with disabilities, reduced mobility, or reduced orientation [Connell1997]. This workshop specifically focuses on especially vulnerable road users eVRUs [Hollaender2021] like children, older adults or people with impairments.
