Looking at Humans in the Age of Self Driving Vehicles

Abstract:
We are undergoing exciting and momentous changes in how we move about in this world, especially on the roadways that were built for carriages driven by animals or those we drove ourselves. We are designing intelligent systems, which would drive us to our destinations smoothly, safely and comfortably. Autonomous driving is no longer in science fiction or in specialized research laboratories, but is offered for general public to ride. In this presentation, we will take a glimpse of how we have arrived at this point in time and also what issues researchers engaged in the field are confronting which require deeper examination and careful resolution to assure safety, reliability and robustness of these highly complex systems. We will highlight issues as they relate to the understanding of human agents interacting with the automated vehicle, who are either occupants of such vehicles, or who are in the near vicinity of the vehicles. The main idea is to develop an approach to properly design, implement and evaluate methods and computational frame-works for distributed systems where intelligent robots and humans cohabit, with proper understanding of mutual goals, plans, intentions, risks and safety parameters.
