Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Recently, the autonomous driving technologies are developed in cars and personal mobility devices which include electric wheelchairs for elderly people. However, many of these autonomous driving systems focus on efficiency and safety. In order for the autonomous mobility to be accepted by passengers, they have to be perceived as safe and comfortable for passengers. Since perceived safety and comfort depend on each passengers' driving experience, habits, knowledge, personality, and preference. It is necessary to personalize the autonomous driving system to optimize its behavior for each passenger. But there are still few studies on personalization of autonomous driving, and there is not enough verification of what kind of difference caused by individual stress. In this study, we show the difference in individual passengers' stress objectively based on physiological measurements (heart rate and galvanic skin response). By using these data to attempt classifying passengers by susceptibility to stress factors. We evaluated characteristics of passengers' stress actually obtained from experimental data using a robot wheelchair and clustered passengers using physiological measurements.
