Use Cases - InnoBrain

Generally, the main intention of all these studies is to evaluate the cognitive performance of the drivers and operators in different driving situations. This can provide us with the basis to perform objective evaluations between all these approaches.

1. Conventional:

In this case, the driver’s cognitive performance is evaluated in a real environment where the driver has interaction with all the environmental elements in and outside the car.

2. Driving Simulator:

In this case, the driver’s cognitive performance is evaluated in a simulated environment on head-up displays where the real environment is simulated. So the only interaction is to a digital environment.

3. VR Simulator:

In this case, the head-up displays are replaced with VR headsets, and the driver’s cognitive performance is evaluated in a totally digital environment.

4. Teleoperation:

In this case, the driver is performing the driving operation from distance by using the head-up displays.

Provided with the results of these studies, the main differences and challenges in driving a vehicle from distance and in the digital environment can be discovered and required measures to get a distance operation closer to real driving can be considered. Because there are many interaction elements of the driver with the vehicle and environment in a teleoperating situation will be missed which could affect the driver’s perception, performance and thereby operation safety.
