A system is presented that shares control between a driver and sensors to maneuver a vehicle. The vehicle can be driven by a driver, or by the sensors, or they can share control between them. In some circumstances, sharing control can allow a human driver to drive more efficiently and safely. The gains in the controller are automatically set for the human driver and sensors by calculating a trust-factor for the vehicle driver. The sensors can assist a human driver in driving the vehicle to offset for any detected shortcomings; for example, the driver may not be able to see a vehicle ahead or the human driver may be tired. In emergencies, efficient interaction between the vehicle and a human driver can make all the differences. This research explores that collaboration and interfacing. The proposed methods are validated with initial testing.
