As the research and studies are going on, grouping and classifying the social status of how to deal with the social coordination in AVs are also playing a major contribution.
Social Coordination- It has been defined as a conflict involving the social dilemmas between the self-interest of the agent’s short-term and longer-term of the group’s collective interest. In driving, the occurrence of social dilemmas is present since coordination needs to be done between the drivers for safety and efficient joint maneuvers.
Some examples include resource depletion, low voter turnout, overpopulation, the prisoner’s dilemma, or the game by public goods. The consideration of traffic merges or opening and closing a gap often helps us to predict human behavior so that better decision-making is possible to improve the group efficiency.
In my opinion, one of the crucial factors in designing new concepts related to vehicle technology or transportation is to keep in mind the social dilemmas. As each country or continent got its own set of rules such as following right-hand or left-hand rules then it is necessary to keep in mind how the navigation system can handle the heavy traffic scenario. The predicting behavior of the traffic merge is also important for a better decision-making capability.
