Lesson Learned

Further research, testing, and safety features should be developed to assist drivers as they transition from automated to manual control of a vehicle. Analysis of automated vehicle crashes in California shows that 30 percent of crashes occur while transitioning from automated to manual control or vice versa. Of the crashes associated with transitioning, the majority occurred when the driver initiated a transition and not when the vehicle initiated the transition. These findings may partially validate concerns over the extensive workload placed on drivers in automated mode who are tasked with monitoring both challenging roadway conditions and the automated systems.
