Workshop objectives

We argue that automated driving systems (ADSs) are robots on four wheels and the design of such vehicles is similar as the design of "traditional" robots. Questions, such as:

  • How to design ADSs that evokes trust in its drivers?
  • How to avoid overtrust?
  • How should ethics be programmed in an ADS?
  • etc.,
are closely related to similar questions asked in the domain of industrial robots or robots for human assistance. Then again, solutions of how to hand-over the control from an ADS to the driver and vice versa is interesting from human-robot interaction perspective. In this workshop we bring together researchers, designers, and practitioners in the field of ADS design and human-robot interaction. The aim of the workshop is to bridge the two communities by positioning paper presentations and group discussions. As special output, we strive for a special issue in a dedicated journal (e.g., Journal of Human-Robot Interaction).
