HMI principals developed for cooperative systems

The aim of the IMAGinE work package WP2.4 "HMI principals" (HMI: human-machine interaction) was to develop relevant HMI principals for cooperative systems, create initial design variants based on "ideal world" conditions, and to investigate their effects empirically.

For this purpose, HMI questions were initially derived that are related to systems for cooperative maneuver coordination in manual and automated driving. Subsequently, studies in both car and truck driving simulations served to answer key questions for the development of a driver-centered interaction concept. In subject studies, cooperative behavior (with regard to efficiency, safety, acceptance, trust, comfort and chronology of the maneuvers) was recorded using an implemented HMI concept in selected use cases of the IMAGinE functions (IMAGinE functions). The effect of measures e.g., gamification, to increase motivation on cooperation behavior was also examined. In addition to the subject studies in the driving simulator, the project partners carried out literature analyzes and expert workshops to develop HMI principals.

From the study results, implications for the further procedure of the HMI development in IMAGinE were derived. The individual studies were summarized in deliverable D2.4 "HMI studies and interaction concept". Individual findings have already been published in conference proceedings and in specialist journals and are shown in the "publications" section as core innovation "HMI" (publications).

The results achieved in WP2.4 are included in WP3.5 "Driving simulation and driver behavior" and the HMI concept will be expanded to include the aspect of "uncertainty conditions" that exist in reality.
