Vehicle Feedback and Driver Situation Awareness

Vehicle Feedback and Driver Situation Awareness

1st Edition

Guy H. Walker, Neville A. Stanton, Paul M. Salmon
June 05, 2018

A potentially troubling aspect of modern vehicle design – some would argue - is a trend for isolating the driver and reducing vehicle feedback, usually in the name of comfort and refinement but increasingly because of automation. There is little doubt cars have become more civilised over the years,...
