Autonomous Vehicles: Vulnerable Road User Response to Visual Information Using an Analysis Framework for Shared Spaces
Sprache des Titels:
Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles
Autonomous vehicles (AV) will directly impact pedestrian behavior at crosswalks, it is necessary to create communication protocols between the two that help build trust in the upcoming technology.
We studied the effects of different communication paradigms focusing on the autonomous vehicle?s communication interface and developed an algorithm
for the analysis of pedestrian behavioral patterns. We describe how we determined the impact of AV on vulnerable road users (VRUs) in shared spaces by analyzing specific parameters, such as the pose and distance of the pedestrian. Results showed that communication with VRUs based on visual cues is not necessarily required for shared spaces, in which informal traffic rules apply.
