Research into Automated Vehicles (AVs) typically focuses on the impact of the technology on the efficiency of road networks. However, AVs will also have significant effects on how Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) will interact with vehicles. A recent article includes interviews with sixteen Human Factors researchers from a wide range of international institutions to get a better sense of future best practices for implementing AVs. In particular, the interviews focused on external human-machine interfaces (eHMIs) and potential applications of augmented reality (AR) in managing VRU-AV interactions.
