Intent Communication between Autonomous Vehicles and Pedestrians
What happens when a car is autonomous and there isn’t a human driver to signal them? The post addresses this issue with an intent communication system (ICS) that acts in place of a human driver. This intent system has been developed to take into account the psychology behind what pedestrians are familiar with and what they expect from machines.
The goal of the system is to ensure that communication is simple, yet effective without leaving pedestrians with a sense of distrust in autonomous vehicles.
