In recent years, automated vehicles have been researched and developed, and their related field operational tests have also conducted for introduction to general roads, highways, and mountainous local areas. In the case of automated vehicle as an owner car, it is likely that a driver will not drive even if he/she is on it. In the case of automated vehicle as mobility and logistics services, it is assumed that the automated vehicles will travel at low speed and in driverless conditions in the initial stage. Focusing on traditional interaction between driver and pedestrian or between drivers, various communication cues such as hand gestures or eye contact have been carried out for such communication. As a result, such communication has been contributing to safety, security and smooth of surrounding traffic. When an automated vehicle is introduced into real traffic conditions, it is necessary for pedestrians and drivers around it to recognize the intention and behavior of the automated vehicle appropriately and moreover to judge and behave in safety, with security, and efficiently, even without such communication cues. Our project aims to research and develop the method and design of human-machine interaction required for safe, secure and smooth communication between automated vehicles and surrounding traffic participants such as pedestrians and other drivers, and previous knowledge that they should have for automated vehicles..
