Joint Cognition in Automated Driving: Combining Human and Machine Intelligence to Address Novel Problems

As in-vehicle automation becomes increasingly prevalent and capable, there will be more opportunity for vehicle drivers to delegate control to automated systems. as well as increased ability for automated systems to intervene to increase road safety. With the decline in how much a driver must be engaged, two problems arise: driver disengagement and reduced ability to act when necessary; and also a likely decrease in active driving, which may reduce the engagement a driver can have for the purpose of enjoyment. As vehicles become more intelligent, they need to work collaboratively with human drivers, in the frame of a joint-cognitive system in order to both extend and backstop human capabilities to optimize safety, comfort, and engagement.
