According to the American Automobile Association, more than 63% of all people fear that no matter how perfect the robot may be, it may not be visible on the road. And this is not a question of mistrust of technology, and lack of feedback – a live driver at the wheel reacts to the surrounding reality and this reaction is at least understandable to everyone. And that's what the silent drone has thought up himself, nobody on the street understands.
Headlights for indicating turns and stop at the drones and so there is, so they need something more, believe in the company Jaguar Land Rover. And they are developing a new type of interface, not for interaction between a pedestrian and a machine, but for informing the first about the actions of the second. For example, huge, cartoon-like eyes-screens that will look at the person and wink “Hey, I see you, slow down and I'm not going to crush you at all!”.
Whoever is afraid of the sight of an earthen robot can choose the option with light indication or animation when the current situation and intentions of the car are displayed on the frontal screen of the drones. It's not so important what exactly and in what format to show how to give a person eye contact, understanding that the machine has noticed it and is ready to cooperate. And, on the other hand, the experiment is in full swing and it is not ruled out that it will be decided by its results – no, it's scary and uncomfortable for people to feel so much attention from every bus or postal cart.
