Drivers of partially automated vehicles are blamed for crashes that they cannot reasonably avoid

People seem to hold the human driver to be primarily responsible when their partially automated vehicle crashes. But is this reasonable? Researchers Niek Beckers, Luciano Cavalcante Siebert, Merijn Bruijnes, Catholijn Jonker & David Abbink from the AiTech initiative investigated the apparent mismatch between the public’s attribution of blame and finding from the human factors literature regarding human’s ability to remain vigilant in partially automated driving.
