Vocal guidance of visual gaze during an automated vehicle handover task

Vocal guidance of visual gaze during an automated vehicle handover task
Vocal guidance of visual gaze during an automated vehicle handover task
Our technological world is developing rapidly, and with it, the roles of automation are becoming increasingly safety critical. Automated vehicles that require human input when a design, geographical or capability boundary has been met require effective communication between driver and vehicle to ensure system safety. This paper explores the role of vocal communication in guiding visual gaze during the task of handing over control to a driver after being ‘out-of-the-loop’ for a set amount of time. This is with the intention of increasing driver awareness of the environment, and explore whether this method is effective in guiding this process. This study found that vocal guidance is highly correlated with visual gaze towards the visual information streams that display information relevant to a vocal cue, indicating that designers could consider the vocal approach alongside head-up interface aides as a means of raising situation awareness during transitions of control.

Abstract

Our technological world is developing rapidly, and with it, the roles of automation are becoming increasingly safety critical. Automated vehicles that require human input when a design, geographical or capability boundary has been met require effective communication between driver and vehicle to ensure system safety. This paper explores the role of vocal communication in guiding visual gaze during the task of handing over control to a driver after being ‘out-of-the-loop’ for a set amount of time. This is with the intention of increasing driver awareness of the environment, and explore whether this method is effective in guiding this process. This study found that vocal guidance is highly correlated with visual gaze towards the visual information streams that display information relevant to a vocal cue, indicating that designers could consider the vocal approach alongside head-up interface aides as a means of raising situation awareness during transitions of control.
