Automated driving can largely reduce modern traffic problems and improve driving comfort. During conditional automated driving (Level 3), drivers are allowed to engage in non-driving related tasks but need to take over the vehicle timely once the system reached its limitation. In this critical process, drivers have to shift their attention and acquire situational awareness in order to take over successfully. Existing studies have shown that take-over requests, non-driving related tasks, driving situations and driver-related factors were all critical factors in the take-over process. In the future, we can investigate the cognitive mechanism of the influence of various factors on the take-over process and explore possible interactions between these factors.

Key words: automated driving, take-over process, attention, situation awareness
