Safe-D: Safety through Disruption

Safe-D Participates in the CCAT 2019 Global Symposium on Connected Vehicles & Infrastructure

On February 27, 2019, Safe-D Associate Director Sue Chrysler (TTI) represented Safe-D at the 2019 Global Symposium for Connected and Automated Vehicles and Infrastructure, sponsored by the Center for Connected and Automated Transportation (CCAT).

The 2019 Global Symposium for Connected and Automated Vehicles and Infrastructure focused on overarching research issues related to CAV research, technology, testing and deployments, policy, as well as education, training and workforce development.

At this event, Dr. Chrysler organized a panel on human factors issues in automated vehicles titled Human Factors Issues During Transition from Automatic to Manual Vehicle Control. This panel presented a scenario where an automated vehicle system encounters a situation it can’t handle and makes a request for the human operator to take control. Panelists examined issues concerning system design, driver-vehicle interface design, regulatory and testing issues, and forensic investigation topics.
