The data was collected through a series of experiments where online participants drove robotic vehicles remotely in a coordination game. We evaluated 8 treatment combinations of autonomous safety technology (manual, auto-braking assistance, auto-steering assistance, and the combination of braking and steering assistance) and communication capabilities (presence or absence of a messaging function), and 2 supplementary conditions (manual to auto-steering assistance and vice versa). We conducted 15 sessions for each treatment combination or condition, for a total of 150 groups (sessions) with 300 participants overall (N=240 for the main experiment and N=60 for the supplementary one). Each participant played only one session consisting of 10 rounds of the remote driving game.
