Driver assistance systems and automated vehicle systems will only be able to realize their full potential in terms of safety effects if they take the end-user into account in their design. In 2020, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management commissioned a project on Human Factor Guidelines on driver assistance systems, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), and Automated Driving Systems (ADS). These guidelines are intended to provide both policy makers and manufacturers / service providers with guidance in the safety assessment of in-vehicle systems. At the same time if there are guidelines that a design must meet, these guidelines can also be used to check if the design complies with them. In other words, where the "HF Guidelines" specify what should be taken into account in the design of in-vehicle systems, they can also be used for the evaluation of these systems when the guidelines are combined with evaluation tools and criteria. After all, a good system must comply with the guidelines. In the end the objective of the development of the "HF Guidelines" is to arrive at a uniform evaluation framework of the interaction processes between vehicle and driver.
To come to these guidelines a number of separate reports have been prepared:
• Report 1: Literature review and overview
• Report 2: Overview and description of the different driver support systems
• Report 3: Literature study on the use of ADAS and the mental models of drivers
• Report 4: Human Factor Guidelines for ADAS and Automated Driving Systems
• Report 5: Test Criteria
Report 1 - 3 and 5 can be found in the annexes (bijlagen) to this report.
