Abstract

When prototyping automated vehicles using the WoZ methodology, the driving behavior simulated by driving wizards significantly shapes participants' experience during the experiment. Therefore, driving wizards should be provided with instructions regarding the automated driving behavior. However, they are currently instructed in different ways. It is hypothesized that different instructions lead to differing mental models and consequently to a differing realization of the automated driving behavior to be simulated. A study using a right-hand drive vehicle was conducted where participants acted as driving wizards. Three different instructions were tested at two test times (3x2 within-subjects design, N = 14). As a result, a set of rules, that driving wizards may use when simulating an automated driving style, was developed. Using qualitative and quantitative guidelines as instructions might lead to a more homogeneous mental model between several driving wizards as well as for the same driving wizard at different points in time.
