Abstract and Figures

Im Verbundprojekt Vorreiter entwickelt das Institut für Arbeitswissenschaft (IAW) der RWTH Aachen University gemeinsam mit Partnern intuitive Bedienkonzepte zur Kooperation und Interaktion mit teil- und hochautomatisierten Fahrzeugen. Dabei werden neben Lenkgesten auch Interaktionen mit innovativen Bedienelementen untersucht. Aufgabe des IAW ist die Erforschung des Potenzials der Lenkgesten und deren Überführung in Bedienkonzepte sowie die Erarbeitung visueller und haptischer Interaktionskonzepte für die Auswahl von Manövern.

Automated driving puts severe challenges on the design and testing of automotive user interfaces. In partially automated driving, the driver is still responsible for the vehicle control, but is strongly supported by technology. In highly automated driving, the driver can give control to the automation for a certain time and can get control back e.g., when the automation encounters limits. Despite great technological progress, a truly intuitive way to interact with these automated driving modes is still under research. Project Vorreiter is addressing this by using the inspiration of a rider and a horse to provide intuitive steering gestures on the steering wheel or an alternative device, which initiate maneuvers executed by the automation. These can be supervised, influenced or interrupted by the driver. The gestures are built up in a universal design approach, which helps all drivers, including beginners and drivers with disabilities. After an introduction into the overall philosophy and concept, the contribution focuses on a final step in the project, an overall evaluation of the concept in a driving simulator and presents new data especially on the comparison of swiping gestures and pushing gestures regarding false or true positive or negative detected gestures. Finally, a brief outlook sketches next steps with a new Wizard-of-Oz / theater vehicle.
