MIT Human-Centered Autonomous Vehicle

Lex Fridman, MIT, shows how one day your (semi-)autonomous vehicle may ask you to take over if you’re distracted too much, e.g. by texting instead of driving.

Introducing our shared autonomy research vehicle with a demo of voice-based transfer of control based on whether the driver is paying attention to the road and on risk factors detected in the external environment. Our work aims to reimagine the self-driving car as a shared autonomy system built around the human being. Paper describing key ideas will be out shortly.
