The importance of driver state assessment within highly automated vehicles
The EU-funded project HAVEit aims at the realization of highly automated driving for intelligent transport. Within the Joint System approach in HAVEit automation is adapted to the intentions and limits of both of the two members in a Joint system- the driver and a technical co- system. In order to evaluate driver’s performance capabilities it is necessary to online monitor his/her alertness and attention level. If the driver is detected as either drowsy or distracted it has to be decided how to bring him/her back into the loop by selecting the appropriate automation level. This paper presents an approach for online assessment of driver’s state by using a combination of direct measures (e.g. eye lid measurement) and indirect measures (e.g. driving performance measures). A differentiated set of parameters is described that reflects the underlying energetic and attentional processes within the evolution of driver’s state.
