Abstract (Swedish)
Newly developed Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Automated Driving offer support to the driver in his/her driving task. Besides driver comfort, these systems are expected to give significant safety improvements. However, the expected positive safety effects only will be achieved if the driver uses the system in the way it was intended to be used, he/she follows its recommendations and does not compensate for perceived safety improvements by driving faster or less attentively. The financiers of technology development programmes (e.g. the European Commission) are becoming increasingly conscious of this possible phenomenon of behavioural adaptation, when the driver perceives safety improvements, and hence give growing importance...

Newly developed Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Automated Driving offer support to the driver in his/her driving task. Besides driver comfort, these systems are expected to give significant safety improvements. However, the expected positive safety effects only will be achieved if the driver uses the system in the way it was intended to be used, he/she follows its recommendations and does not compensate for perceived safety improvements by driving faster or less attentively. The financiers of technology development programmes (e.g. the European Commission) are becoming increasingly conscious of this possible phenomenon of behavioural adaptation, when the driver perceives safety improvements, and hence give growing importance to user related assessment of new technology, since it is through the user the expected advantages of a new system may (or may not) materialise.
User-related evaluation of ADAS and Automated Driving Applications involves a great variety of issues (such as locus of control, trust, mental representation of the system, situational awareness, mental and physical workload, feedback, stress and acceptance), hence it is of importance to identify and define these issues as focus of user-related evaluation. As a first step of the user-related evaluation process, research questions concerning these issues are to be outlined, and based on them working hypotheses to be formulated and evaluation indicators to be identified. For testing the hypotheses, there is a great variety of evaluation methods and tools that can be employed.
The aim of this chapter is to list and describe relevant issues of user-related evaluation of ADAS and Automated Driving Applications, to give examples of hypotheses and evaluation indicators, as well as describe available evaluation methods and tools and discuss relevant study design issues.
