The company has provided simulation equipment and expertise to Cardiff University’s School of Psychology, which is currently undertaking ground-breaking work in the fields of autonomous driving and human / machine systems.
Paris (France), 31st March 2021 – ST Engineering Antycip has once again put its technology at the forefront of cutting-edge research with the installation of a bespoke transport simulator at a special unit within the University of Cardiff’s School of Psychology.
This new simulator will allow the unit – which is a collaboration between the university’s schools of Engineering, Computer Science and Psychology – to conduct in-depth analysis and human-centric experimentation in order to investigate how humans perceive and interact with autonomous vehicles, such as self-driving cars.
The work is driven by an EU-funded body called Centre for Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Human-Machine Systems (IROHMS), and is overseen by Professor Phil Morgan, IROHMS director of research.
“One thing we are interested in is how people attribute blame in an accident between people and autonomously driven cars,” said Morgan. “In order to look at this from a practical perspective, experiments using simulations and where possible (future) prototype AVs are crucial with surveys and the like to gather complementary data on subjective perceptions.”
