Cognitive architectures and psycho-physiological measures

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Imagine you have just purchased a new Tesla Model S to take advantage of all of that new technology Tesla has packed into the latest iteration of their flagship car model and to achieve great fuel economy on your upcoming long trip. Excited, yet inundated with the new systems and technology in your Tesla, you embark on a cross-country trip. One system that had not previously taken much of your attention, but has now peaked your attention and interest, is the autopilot feature. The recent interest has arisen from current external and internal contexts: your appreciation that you are in heavy traffic and running behind schedule, and you are beginning to get drowsy. You remember reading somewhere that you should be attentive and to have your hands on the wheel while in 222autopilot mode, but instead you decide to allow the autopilot system to navigate you through this crawling traffic while you take a quick nap. Minutes later you wake up to a sudden jolt. You have just been involved in an auto accident that has ruined the right side of your new car and the guard rail that got in its way.
