Book Chapter
Morgan, P. L., Williams, C., Flower, J., Alford, C., & Parkin, J. (2018). Trust in an autonomously driven simulator and vehicle performing maneuvers at a T-junction with and without other vehicles. In N. Stanton, & J. Kacprzyk (Eds.), Advances in Human Aspects of Transportation Proceedings of the AHFE 2018 International Conference on Human Factors in Transportation, July 21–25, 2018, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida, USA, 363-375. Springer

Autonomous vehicle (AV) technology is developing rapidly. Level 3 automation assumes the user might need to respond to requests to retake control. Levels 4 (high automation) and 5 (full automation) do not require human monitoring of the driving task...

Manual takeover and handover of a simulated fully autonomous vehicle within urban and extra urban settings (2017)
Book Chapter
Morgan, P., Alford, C., Williams, C., Parkhurst, G., & Pipe, A. G. (2017). Manual takeover and handover of a simulated fully autonomous vehicle within urban and extra urban settings. In N. A. Stanton (Ed.), Advances in Human Aspects of Transportation: Proceedings of the AHFE 2017 International Conference on Human Factors in Transportation, 760-771. Springer

Relatively little is known about human behavior and performance when retaking control of highly autonomous vehicles (AVs) at different speeds and under varied driving conditions. Past research has tended to focus on long periods of high-speed extra-u... Read More about Manual takeover and handover of a simulated fully autonomous vehicle within urban and extra urban settings.

Sleepiness, countermeasures and the risk of motor vehicle accidents (2009)
Book Chapter
Alford, C. (2009). Sleepiness, countermeasures and the risk of motor vehicle accidents. In J. C. Verster, S. Pandi-Parumal, J. Ramaekers, & J. de Gier (Eds.), Drugs, Driving and Traffic Safety (207-232). Basel: Birkhauser

There are several factors that increase the risk of driver sleepiness and result in increased accident risk. Modern vehicle design enables the driver to travel at high speeds and for long distances in a comfortable and often sleep promoting driving...
