(07) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc Data-driven Prediction of Human Body Motion in Automated Vehicles

The potential discomfort and motion sickness experienced by passengers during automated journeys pose a significant challenge to their widespread adoption. Envisaged automated vehicle (AV) designs and their driving behavior are expected to provoke motion sickness and discomfort, hindering passengers’ ability to enjoy their commute time. Despite substantial investments in AV technology, the importance of motion comfort has been largely overlooked. Fundamental questions regarding occupants’ postural control (when and how they are activated) in AVs remain unanswered, which has led to the lack of human body models (HBM) able to predict human motion and postural control (both anticipatory as preparation for upcoming perturbation, and compensatory for restoring balance after perturbation).

To model human motion, researchers have employed simplified efficient models, which are faster to run than complex human body models and useful for early-stage design evaluations. However, these simplified models may fail to capture the intricacies of the human body’s response to motion. Advanced active human body models offer highly detailed information but require specialized expertise and significant computational time. Furthermore, neither type of model adequately captures occupants’ anticipatory and compensatory postural control based on upcoming or experienced motion.

(13) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Researcher Exploration of VR-based methods for comfortable use in automated vehicles

The potential discomfort and motion sickness experienced by passengers during automated journeys present a significant challenge to their widespread adoption. Envisioned automated vehicle (AV) designs and their driving behavior are anticipated to provoke motion sickness and discomfort, impeding passengers’ ability to enjoy their commute time. Despite substantial investments in AV technology, the importance of motion comfort has been largely overlooked.

The transition from driver to passenger in automated vehicles will enable individuals to engage in non-driving related tasks (NDRT), a crucial aspect for the successful integration of AVs into our daily lives. However, participation in NDRTs is expected to exacerbate motion sickness and discomfort. In this regard, Virtual Reality (VR) holds promise as a useful tool. Firstly, passengers will seek more entertainment options while being driven, and VR can cater to this demand. Moreover, VR offers the ability to fully manipulate visual inputs and the passenger’s environment, enabling immersion in a boundless virtual space. For instance, this could provide users with the equivalent of multiple computer monitors to work with, an otherwise unattainable feat within the confined space of a car.

(14) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Researcher on human-in-the-loop system design for automated driving

Advanced driver assistance systems are key to enhancing road safety. One of the critical requirements for such systems is to reliably perceive the environment. The state-of-the-art sensors, however, are not ubiquitously deployed in driver assistance systems due to their high cost. On the other hand, simpler low-cost sensing solutions suffer from poor perception. In this project, you will address this gap by combining sensing capacities of the human driver and the driver assistance system, to develop sensing solutions that are both affordable and reliable.

Your aim will be to develop signal processing algorithms and interfaces to incorporate human driver in the sensing loop of automated driver assistance systems. Your work will leverage the unique cognitive abilities of humans controlling these systems to process complex signals and make informed real-time decisions. The project will lay the foundations for understanding how human interaction with signal processing systems impacts transparency and ethical considerations in deploying hybrid human-in-the-loop solutions.

In this project, whether as a junior researcher or a postdoctoral researcher, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of innovative human-in-the-loop sensing solutions. You will be able to develop your skills in designing innovative human-in-the-loop sensing solutions, rapid prototyping, and evaluation of your solutions in driving simulator experiments with human participants.
