The Institution of Ergonomics and Human Factors awarded him The Otto Edholm Medal in 2001, The President¹s Medal in 2008 and The Sir Frederic Bartlett Medal in 2012 for his contribution to basic and applied ergonomics research. The Royal Aeronautical Society awarded him and his colleagues the Hodgson Prize and Bronze Medal in 2006 for research on design-induced flight-deck error published in The Aeronautical Journal. The University of Southampton have awarded him a DSc in 2014 for his sustained contribution to the development and validation of Human Factors methods.

Distributed Cognition in Automated Driving

Vehicle automation is having a dramatic effect on the driver and driving, such that the cognitive and behavioural processes and functions and processes that were traditionally performed by the driver are increasing be performed by automotive software and hardware. Such functions include: perceiving objects and events; comprehending objects and events; developing situation awareness; remembering objects and events; problem solving; planning; judging objects and events; communicating; braking, accelerating and steering in response to objects and events. The perennial problem is what tasks are left over for the driver to perform and the effects of these left over tasks on performance. There is also some concern in the way in which vehicle control is passed between the driver and vehicle automation. Research to date has shown that driver performance is generally decremented where automation replaces their performance but can be improved where automation augments driver performance. Such research shows that increasing vehicle automation significantly reduces the driver’s ability to reclaim control of the vehicle when required to do so. Whilst the may seem like an argument for augmentation over automation, even examples of driver augmentation cannot guarantee improved performance if it is poorly implemented. This research has been developing methods and models for examining distributed cognition in automobile automation as well as generating new insights into the nature of how distributed cognition works in practice. Ultimately this research aims to design automotive automation in a manner that improves driver performance and makes driving safer and more enjoyable.

Have a look at his conversation article: Driverless cars are a catch 22: we do none of the driving, but take all of the responsibility
