Abstract:This study investigated the possibility of alleviating motion sickness in passengers of autonomous vehicles through visual stimuli on interior car panels. Past research has demonstrated that persons being driven in an autonomous vehicle are considerably more at risk of developing symptoms of motion sickness, which forms a major hindrance for their broad implementation. The sensory conflict theory suggests that a conflict between expected and felt motion is what triggers sickness. In line with this, anticipation has been attributed a major role in sickness prevention. We implemented motion cueing stimuli that were providing information about either current or near future heading direction and velocity on interior presents in our experiment. There was a significant effect of both conditions on motion sickness, indicating that these implementations can effectively be used to alleviate sickness.
