Abstract:With the introduction of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) on public roads, there is a change regarding the communication from vehicles to pedestrians. The conventional bidirectional communication between driver and pedestrian via eye gaze or hand gestures shifts to a human-machine interaction. A resulting challenge for the automotive industry will therefore be to develop new interaction possibilities for AVs, which enable the communication intention of vehicles to pedestrians. One possible way for the external communication of AVs could be an exterior human-machine interface (eHMI), where an explicit, informative message is presented via different technical arrangements outside the vehicle. In this study, six different eHMI concepts were investigated for their comprehensibility and usefulness of the communication intention of an AV. The concepts were previously developed as part of the ‘HMI for external communication’ research project of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft.
