Designing trust-based in-car interfaces is critical for the adoption of self-driving cars. Indeed, latest studies revealed that a vast majority of drivers are not willing to trust this technology.
Article
This paper provides a taxonomy of different forms of autonomous vehicle handover situations. It covers scheduled, emergency and non-emergency handovers and it differentiates between system and driver initiated handovers. The purpose is to examine how the system and driver are responsible for different stages in the transition timeline, i.e., first...
Article
In this article, we investigated what visual information is used by driver at a road crossing when they want to synchronize their displacement with that of an incoming traffic train. We made the hypothesis that synchronizing self-displacement with that of a traffic gap shares the same perceptual-motor basis as interception tasks. While a large body...
Article
This study is assessing the sensitivity of an affordable BCI device in the context of driver distraction in both low-fidelity simulator and real-world driving environments. Twenty-three participants performed a car following task while using a smartphone application involving a range of generic smartphone widgets. On the first hand, the results dem...
Conference Paper
This paper proposes a taxonomy of autonomous vehicle handover situations with a particular emphasis on situational awareness. It focuses on a number of research challenges such as: legal responsibility, the situational awareness level of the driver and the vehicle, the knowledge the vehicle must have of the driver's driving skills as well as the in...
Conference Paper
In the scope of autonomous driving, the question arises if the increased use of automated systems will have an impact on driver's skills in handling the car in the long term. In order to gain more insights on the issue of driver deskilling and how it relates to driving experience and time intervals of non-driving, we conducted an online survey (n=7...
Article
The rapid emergence of new technologies in recent decades has opened up a world of opportunities for a better understanding of human mobility and behavior. It is now possible to recognize human movements, physical activity and the environments in which they take place. And this can be done with high precision, thanks to miniature sensors integrated...
Conference Paper
Smart and wearable devices are trendy electronic objects that have become increasingly popular in recent years. Those devices are, by definition, tightly connected with the user's personal activities. Authentication is therefore a critical feature for both identifying users and personalizing the services on the device. In particular, the emergence...
Conference Paper
Despite the rapid pace of gadgets released on the market, research in the area of usable interfaces for wearables is lagging behind. Smartglasses are new wearables that embed diverse sensors but also have small displays, and this makes it hard for the wearer to visualize real-time data. To bridge this gap, the contribution of this paper is threefol...
Article
Innovative in-car applications provided on smartphones can deliver real-time alternative mobility choices and subsequently generate visual-manual demand. Prior studies have found that multi-touch gestures such as kinetic scrolling are problematic in this respect. In this study we evaluate three prototype tasks which can be found in common mobile in...
Conference Paper
The emergence of new connected devices has opened up new opportunities and allowed to imagine concepts that bring computer sciences and social sciences closer together. In particular, today's increasingly sophisticated miniature sensors allow to track and understand human activities and behavior with a great precision. Taking different approaches a...
Conference Paper
In the future autonomous vehicles will drive on our roads. It is unlikely that we will immediately move from manual to fully autonomous vehicles, instead the mix will change over time and include a large number of semi-autonomous vehicles. As a result human drivers will need to take over in specific situations (e.g., when sensors fail) and there wi...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Two methods of object position and movement estimation in relation to the user of smart glasses were investigated. An active infrared and ultrasonic methods of the obstacle detection were presented and compared. Application of these methods depend on active transducers type (physical medium used), geometry and surface properties of detected objects...

This paper presents a comparative pilot usability study of Dasher and an on-screen keyboard on a head-mounted display. Interaction logging data was captured along with subjective responses (via the SUS questionnaire). The results indicate that there is a strong need to develop text entry systems for smart glasses rather to simply adopt those that a...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Early research on head-worn computers (HWCs) has focused on hardware and specific applications. However, there is little research about the everyday usage of head-worn computers in particular aspects such as: context of use, social acceptance across different activities, audiences and interaction techniques. This paper provides insights into the us...

We present a smart glasses application for helping colorblind people to distinguish problematic colors in daily life. The prototype processes a live video stream from the mobile camera, remaps colors according to the user needs, and displays the augmented result. Color transformation ensures high contrast between colors which are otherwise indistin...
Conference Paper

In this paper we present the DriveLab IVIS testing platform which allows for the same experiments to be conducted both under simulator and real car conditions. Other key aspects of DriveLab is that it is highly modular (therefore allowing the exchange or integration of different components) and that it supports more than one driver. For example we...

Using a fixed-base driving simulator, 15 participants actively drove their vehicle across a rural road toward an intersection. Their task was to safely cross the intersection, passing through a gap in the train of incoming traffic. Spatiotemporal task constraints were manipulated by varying the initial conditions (offsets) with respect to the time...
Article
Full-text available
Safely crossing an intersection requires that drivers actively control their approach to the intersection with respect to characteristics of the flow of incoming traffic. To further our understanding of the perceptual-motor processes involved in this demanding manoeuvre, we designed a driving simulator experiment in which 13 participants actively n...

Full-text available
This Ph.D. project aims at studying drivers' road crossing behaviour under the perspective of visually guided actions. In the introduction, we present that former studies related to road crossing behaviour mainly focused on perceptual judgement processes. However, we demonstrate that this kind of task would be better understood with theories issued...

This paper presents an architecture and partially built simulation platform which is designed to offer a flexible open ended approach for conducting laboratory experiments. The emphasis is on supporting multiple drivers and the ability to swap in and out different software components and devices.
Article
Epidemiological studies showed that alcohol is a major cause of mortal accidents, in particular at night and at week end, and that the risk of accident is directly linked to the rate of alcohol in the blood. As there is lack of behavioral measures that could be used to define a dangerous threshold for driving after taking licit or illicit drugs, we...
Conference Paper
Background / Purpose: In order to safely cross an intersection a driver needs to pass through an appropriate gap within the flow of oncoming traffic. As the task can be conceived as one of intercepting a moving gap, it is comparable to an object-interception task relying on a strategy of zeroing out changes in the object’s bearing angle. However,...

Although the principle of vision sensory substitution has been validated for over thirty years, its potential benefit for visually im- paired people still remain largely untapped. The existing devices appears inefficient with respect to the actual problems impairing the daily life of visually impaired subjects. Recent advances in the comprehension...

Our goal is to reduce operators’ mental workload and to support for a better visual attention guidance during remote collaboration with industrial robots. We test ecological scenarios involving virtual/mixed reality, haptic interaction devices and robotic platforms for industry.
