Autonomous driving is a current research and development topic. Mostly, the focus is on the technical implementation including artificial intelligence. However, further aspects like ‘social and ethic aspects’, ‘legal aspects’ and ‘ergonomics and physiological requirements’ should be taken into consideration. The latter point includes the kinetosis (travel sickness), which is often neglected, but plays an import role in autonomous driving: While the car is driving autonomously, passengers in the car are often sitting sideways or backwards, which can cause travel sickness (= motion sickness).
