Abstract:In the world of automated driving, the shift from Level 2 to Level 3 will mark an important change in the role of the driver. In L3 automated vehicles, drivers are “passive” as they are only expected to drive after moments of handover. This means that drivers are expected to take control of the driving from AI only when AI requests a takeover. The underlying psychological factors that might affect the human- AI interaction during handover are crucial to understand because unsuccessful takeovers can lead to accidents. To our knowledge, the present study is the first that attempted to examine the relationship between a time constrained takeover request, situational trust, mental workload, sleepiness, state anxiety, and success in taking over (takeover performance of drivers). In this pilot, we identified significant effects of mental workload and state anxiety on taking over success. We found situational trust to be a significant mediator of mental workload and state anxiety. Through Bayesian Structural Equation Modeling (BSEM) and model selection approaches, we identified a model that showed a significant explanation of success in taking over. The study found supporting evidence for the relevance of voice chatbot simulations as a continuous measurement tool in VR studies.
