Non-driving Related Activities in Automated Driving – An Online Survey Investigating User Needs
Automated driving allows the driver to deal with non-driving related activities (NDRA). Surveys, observations in other modes of transportation and driving simulator studies reveal a high variance in possible activities and activity durations. An online study was thus conducted to investigate factors influencing the choice of NDRA. Privacy, storage option, travel duration and purpose were found to have an impact on the attractiveness of certain activities. Furthermore, we investigated the changing need for information that comes with activity engagement. When performing an intense NDRA such as working, results of the online survey indicate that information about current and upcoming maneuvers, surrounding traffic and current speed become less important, while reliability, system status and especially remaining time in current automation mode remain important for people engaged in a NDRA.
