Human-Automation - Railway remote control: how to define shared information and functions?

Abstract : As it had already been observed in other domains, such as aircraft or automotive sectors, the development of fully automated driving systems in the mainline railway sector faces multiple technical and safety barriers. Before such an advanced system can be overcome, systems with intermediate and adaptive levels of automation must be considered and studied. In this context, human operators maintain a crucial role for the train driving activity and their interactions with technical systems and other agents must remain among the main focuses of the conception phase. These interactions are considered through a thorough Human-Machine cooperation model. The objective of this paper is to present a conception and evaluation method implementing this model in the development of assistance systems for cooperation with human operators. The method is currently being applied for train remote driving as part of the TC-Rail project, where the aim of the study is to focus on Human-Factors aspects. A second phase of development is currently in progress and has been complemented by the results of a first phase. Along with the conception method, the state of this second phase, as well as use cases for future tests that implement it, are presented in this paper.
