Abstract

The purpose of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is to enhance traffic safety and efficiency. ADAS can be considered as a (still incomplete) collection of systems and subsystems towards a fully automated highway system, such as autonomous cars. However, as many researchers argue, in assessing the benefits of ADAS it has to be taken into account that any gains in terms of security may be again reduced by the fact they affect the drivers' behavior. In this paper, we introduce a schema of possible negative effects of advanced driver assistant systems according to which consequences of a system failure largely depend on the magnitude of over-reliance. Based on that schema, we itemize hypotheses on possible behavioral effects of a specific ADAS type, namely local danger alerts.
