    Abstract

    This chapter provides an overview of Human Factors issues relevant to the acceptance by drivers of technology-based systems within vehicles. A distinction is made between issues relevant to systems providing information to support driving-related tasks (e.g. navigation), systems that provide some degree of control-based assistance (e.g. Adaptive Cruise Control) and those systems which automate the driving task (e.g. platooning). It is recognised that a range of Human Factors issues will have a direct influence on the acceptance of these systems, including those related to distraction, trust and reliability. Moreover, it is apparent that acceptance itself will impact on system usage, primarily raising issues of reliance. The chapter concludes by highlighting some topics which have received relatively little consideration, but will be critical for the ultimate acceptance of in-vehicle systems.
