The CANdrive Program: Supporting the safer introduction of Level 2 vehicle automation

Vehicles on the market today now have advanced driving features that afford the driver the opportunity to take their eyes off the road and hands off the steering wheel under certain circumstances. A safety concern with these new features is the extent to which drivers may decrease the levels of attention that are directed to maintaining safety driving. We equipped a Tesla vehicle with a range of sensing technologies, including our automotive driver monitoring system, to study the impact of the advanced driving feature on the way drivers allocated their attention while driving. While drivers build trust in these newer driving features very rapidly they do change drivers’ attentional strategies in ways that could impact safety. The automotive industry is acting on the need to have a thorough understanding of driver cognition by introducing driver monitoring systems in vehicles to support the safer introduction of the new wave of advanced driving features.
