Michael’s research explores automotive user interfaces and systems using Augmented Reality as a tool for attention management in SAE Level 3 (and higher) vehicles. The aim of this research is to improve the fallback-readiness, especially Situation Awareness, while the Automated Driving System is engaged (during the so-called non-driving related task).
