The overall aim of this JIP accordingly is to avoid or minimise the occurrence of motion sickness in automated vehicles. The project aims at realising this by explicating the underlying causes of motion sickness in automated vehicles, adopt reliable, sensitive, and valid methods to assess its occurrence, and sketch ways it can be mitigated by adapted (automated) vehicle design and/or other countermeasures.
Vehicle automation increases the chances of experiencing motion sickness, particularly when engaging in display-based activities such as reading. In turn, this may discourage people from using and accepting vehicle automation. Ultimately, this will negate the benefits automation may bring to the individual and society at large.
Adopting an empirical and scientific approach, this joint industry project (JIP, a consortium of industries and research institutes, typically focussing on pre-competitive research questions) will answer outstanding questions concerning the underlying causes for motion sickness in future automated vehicle scenarios. This will provide partners (automotive Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and suppliers) with a robust basis to develop subsequent proprietary mitigation strategies in the design of future vehicles and user interactions.
