A driver is still needed in case of emergency for automated driving systems. Since it is difficult for human to just monitor the system, it is necessary to develop methods for drivers to maintain the attention appropriately when an automated driving system is active. This paper proposes to involve a driver in a tactical decision making. We focus on lane-change decision making in this paper. An experiment with a medium-fidelity driving simulator is demonstrates the effectiveness of involving drivers in lane-change decision making. The results support that the drivers are able to maintain their situation awareness in an appropriate manner.
