Determinants of take-over time from automated driving: A meta-analysis of 129 studies

SWOV researcher Varotto coauthored the article 'Determinants of take-over time from automated driving: A meta-analysis of 129 studies'. An important question in automated driving research is how quickly drivers take over control of the vehicle in response to a critical event or a take-over request. Although a large number of studies have been performed, results vary strongly.

In this study, we investigated mean take-over times from 129 studies with SAE level 2 automation or higher. We used three complementary approaches: (1) a within-study analysis, in which differences in mean take-over time were assessed for pairs of experimental conditions, (2) a between-study analysis, in which correlations between experimental conditions and mean take-over times were assessed, and (3) a linear mixed-effects model combining betweenstudy and within-study effects.
