Vehicle Feedback and Driver Situation Awareness

Guy H. Walker, Neville A. Stanton, Paul M. Salmon
April 17, 2018

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