Human Factors: The Safe Development of Partially Automated Driving Functions Requires a Strong Focus on the Driver

This article describes a partially-automated advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) that enables hands-off driving while requiring drivers to still monitor upcoming situations. The author focuses on the importance of considering the human factors in tandem with the technological innovations as these systems develop. Topics covered include lane changing (initiated by either the driver or the ADAS), and the types of sensors and actuators that are incorporated in the system, notably those that monitor the driver’s awareness and involvement. One sidebar describes ZF TRW’s Highway Driving Support (HDS), a partially automated system that includes land-keeping functions and uses a front camera, front radar, four corner radars, EPS and ESC, and embedded computer software.
