System Safety through Combination of HMI and Dependable Systems (SHADES), Phase II

The first phase of the project, SHADES I, started in July 2008 and will be completed in June 2011. This application concerns the second phase, SHADES II (as indicated in the original application). As in Phase I, SHADES Phase II will take a holistic view where the effects on road safety are studied regardless of if errors arise from poor HMI or technical malfunctions. Failures of the technical systems may at times be controlled by the driver, but will in other cases be uncontrollable. Incorrect driver behavior may sometimes be compensated or corrected by the vehicle. Key actors are VTI with long experience from qualified research in driver behavior and how the human being interacts with technology and SP that has since several years conducted research on functional safety, programmable electronic systems and fault tolerance.

SHADES II - System Safety through Combination of HMI and Dependable Systems (A28)
An online survey was distributed to end-users of adaptive cruise control (ACC). In total 90 drivers answered the questionnaire, which covered e.g. ACC usage and how such use affects driver behaviour. According the responses: the ACC
