Context Presentation

This thesis project answers to the desire of the IRIT-SMAC and CLLE-LTC teams to work together to develop intelligent innovative solutions for the car of the future, both acceptable to humans and technologically feasible. As such, this thesis in cognitive ergonomics focuses on “drivengers”/ partially automated cars interactions.

The general goal is to investigate the conditions allowing to increase drivenger’s acceptability of automated driving, and performance when taking over the control of vehicle from automation.The project will combine several experimental studies, first conducted on a driving simulator (Simul’auto platform - CCU platform - UT2J), then on a closed city experimental circuit (autOCampus circuit - UPS (under design)).
