This thesis takes place in a context of conditional driving automation development which allows drivers to delegate vehicle control and to focus attention on on-board activities, thus lowering his/her situation awareness. Driver dynamically adapt his/her decision making to context constrains based on situation awareness. In cases which involves a take-over request, drivers will have to retake vehicle control and reconstruct their situation awareness in order to guarantee safety.
Moreover, previous studies highlight driving performance deterioration if the takeover context involves a critical event.
The aim of this PhD thesis is to study the active reconstruction of situation awareness and driving performance during manual take-over. The situations studied changes according to the critical event proposed and the budget time granted to the driver to resume control. Data from questionnaires, driving performance and eye-tracking were analyzed. A driving performance deterioration and lower situation awareness are observed following manual take-over.
Moreover, results revealed interactions, modulated by budget time, between the active reconstruction of situation awareness and manual take-over strategies. Results are discussed to contribute to manual take-over models and in light of their implications for automated functions conception.
