Implicit Communication between Cyclists and Turning Automated Vehicles – A Low-Level Simulator Study

A. M. Harkin, A. Mangold, K. A. Harkin, T. PetzoldtNews room

  • Interactions between cyclists and (automated) vehicles were investigated.
  • Different dynamics of turning vehicles as a means of implicit communication were examined.
  • A low-level simulator study was conducted, where participants were seated on a bicycle in front of a large screen.
  • Driving dynamics remain the basis of cyclists’ crossing evaluations, while automation status has a negligible effect.
  • Driving dynamics derived from real human behavior are a good starting point to model automated vehicle behavior.
