Taking a collaborative approach in automated congestion driving with a Traffic Jam Assist system requires the driver to take over control in certain traffic situations. In order to warn the driver appropriately, warnings are issued (“pay attention” vs. “take action”) due to a control transition strategy that reacts to lane change manoeuvres by surrounding traffic. This paper presents the outcome of a driving simulator study regarding the evaluation of a control transition strategy. The strategy was found to provide adequate support to drivers. However, driver acceptance can be increased. A refined model is proposed.
