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.
