Blog: Measuring the Mental Workload of Operators of Highly Automated Vehicles

11 April 2019 – As in-vehicle technologies continue to develop, the driving task will change as will the skills required to operate vehicles with increasingly automated capabilities. We, as an industry, need to have the evidence in place to support this change and ensure that training (whether as part of current trials or future AV deployment) is well-designed and fit for purpose. In a recent paper, published as part of the book Human Mental Workload: Models and Applications, Kristen Fernández-Medina (TRL) explores the task requirements, with a focus on mental workload, of operators of highly automated vehicles with the aim of starting to develop evidence relating to the real-world experiences of AV operators.

EU agrees on provisional deal on new vehicle safety standards for 2022

29 March 2019 – This week the EU agreed a provisional deal on new vehicle safety standards for 2022. One of the new requirements is to fit an overridable Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) system as standard. The ISA will support drivers to drive within the speed limit and is part of a package of vehicle safety measures designed to prevent 25,000 avoidable road deaths. The EU expects that the proposed measures will help save lives and avoid at least 140,000 serious injuries by 2038. The EU’s long-term goal is to approach zero fatalities and serious injuries by 2050 under its ‘Vision Zero’ plan.
