Autonomous vehicles are hitting the market and have the potential to be the most common vehicles on the road in the near future. Autonomous vehicles can make the road safer and travel time more efficient. However, issues such as automation surprises, deskilling of human performance, and over-reliance on automated systems can cancel out these benefits. The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society is offering a public webinar featuring 3 well-known researchers in automation (Mica Endsley, Paul Green, and John Lee) who will discuss the current research that has been conducted and what is needed to improve safety and mitigate any potential drawbacks to autonomous vehicles.

Augmented Reality: What It Can and Cannot Do
Presenters: Jeff Cowgill, Marxent; Kelly Hale, Design Interactive, Inc.; Dr. Paul Havig, US Air Force; Dr. So Young Kim, NASA JPL; Ken Mayer, Ford Motor Company
Moderator: Rebecca Grier, Ford Motor Company
Augmented Reality (AR), or the perceptual enhancement of the real world by computer generated information, was once a technology looking for a problem. As hardware has advanced, so has the utility of AR. However, AR can still cause problems if not implemented quickly. The panelists will discuss lessons learned from successful and unsuccessful applications of AR, as well as where they think the technology is going.
