by Professor Neville A. Stanton from the Transportation Research Group, Faculty of Engineering and the Environment, University of Southampton.

There can be no doubt that the role of the driver is changing as advanced vehicle systems are adopted by vehicle manufacturers. Human Factors and Ergonomics have a very important part to play in designing and evaluating the concepts and technologies before they enter service. Over the past 20 years, Prof Stanton has been involved in a variety of system design projects. He initially conducted research into driver performance with Adaptive Cruise Control with Jaguar, which was the first vehicle manufacturer to market with the system. In subsequent years he has worked on a variety of systems, including: vision enhancement, parking aids, queue assist, all-weather warnings, head -up displays, blind-spot monitoring, collision avoidance systems and various levels of vehicle automation.
