Thanks to Professor Linda Ng Boyle for the very inspiring lunch lecture on April 19th, 2023 at the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering #tudelft. Linda entertained a diverse audience of mobility researchers from different faculties and explained her framework for modelling human-vehicle interactions with increasingly autonomous systems. It was an honour having Linda at our first guest lecture organised by the Delft Design Lab on Automated Mobility. Thanks to Euiyoung Kim and Jered Vroon for organising this together.

A framework for modeling human-vehicle interactions with increasingly autonomous systems 

Modeling human-vehicle interactions requires an understanding of the human behavior. The model development needs to capture human’s interaction with other people, the environment, and their surroundings.  A challenge in model development is the ability to accurately predict human behavior, particularly in complex environments that include other human road users, such as pedestrians and bicyclists. In this presentation, a framework is provided to better quantify and predict interactive human-vehicle decision-making, which can then be used to better inform the algorithms for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Linda Ng Boyle is Professor in Industrial & Systems Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle. She has a joint appointment in Civil & Environmental Engineering. She has degrees from the University of Buffalo (BS) and University of Washington (MS, PhD).  She is a member of the National Academies Board of Human System Integration and co-author of the textbook, “Designing for People: An Introduction to Human Factors Engineering”.
