Abstract (300 words maximum)

Previous research on takeover behavior assumed that even when an automated vehicle (AV) reaches its operational limit, the AV can release the takeover request in a timely manner. However, it is also reasonable to assume that an AV that reached its functional limit crashes into something without releasing a takeover request at all. Even in such an extreme and disastrous situation, a head-up display (HUD) that shows the AV’s planned route using augmented reality (AR) may allow the human driver to notice the potential crash and takeover control of the AV in time. To test this idea, we conducted a driving-simulator experiment where participants monitored the driving status of an AV with or without the AR-HUD that shows the planned route of the car. The data are currently being collected and the participants’ takeover performance will be compared between the two conditions (with vs. without the AR-HUD).
