Research: Consistency could make dangerous situations safer

Our research partnership with John Deere was inspired by customer complaints about how jarring it was moving between vehicles. Operators may need to move from one type of vehicle on a typical worksite. For example, an operator might dig a trench with an excavator then use a loader to move that dirt into a truck. These vehicle transitions can happen many times a day. When users move between vastly different controls, it can be confusing and contribute to accidents, which may cost money or be a safety hazard.
