Abstract

Several levels of automated driving functions require the human as a fallback driver in case system performance limits are exceeded. Human factors research in this area is especially concerned with human performance in these take-over situations and the influence of the driver state. Based on work of the publicly funded project Ko-HAF the paper introduces a comprehensive model of the transition process from automated driving to manual driving and specifies relevant time stamps and time windows. The concept of Driver Availability is regarded as a quantitative measure that relates the estimated time required to safely take-over manual control to the available time budget. A conceptual framework outlines potential influencing factors on driver availability as well as ways to apply the measure in a real-time application.
