Who is in Responsible for Automated Driving? A Macro-level Insight into Automated Driving in the United Kingdom using the Risk Management Framework and Social Network Analysis

To date, vehicle manufacturers have largely been left to their own initiatives when it comes to the design, development and implementation of automated driving features. Whilst this has enabled developments within the field to accelerate at a rapid pace, the negative aspects of automated design (e.g., driver complacency, automation misuse and ethical dilemmas) are now beginning to seen. It is therefore becoming increasingly important to identify systemic aspects that can address some of these Human Factors challenges. This paper applies the principles of the Risk Management Framework to explore the wider systemic issues associated with automated driving in the United Kingdom through the novel application of network metrics. The authors propose a number of recommendations targeted at each level of the Risk Management Framework that seek to shift the power of influence away from vehicle manufacturers and back into the hands of governing bodies.
