Enhanced ADAS II
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is developed to make it safer, more efficient and comfortable to travel by car. For ADAS to work well, it is important that the systems are developed from a driver perspective, which means that interaction design including both interfaces and interaction with the system in a broader perspective is important. With systems that are well designed in functionality and interface, a better user experience is conveyed and thus a more frequent use of the systems. In this way, the positive effects are maximized through increased use. To get there, it is important to take into account, for example, situational awareness, the driver's mental model and trust in the autonomous functionality of the car. In the project, we intend to improve both functionality and usability in ADAS through opportunities for improvements provided by driver and cabin monitoring. It thus enables adaptations in, for example, the vehicle's behaviour but also in the design of the user interface. When it comes to customization in user interfaces, the project will also focus more on multimodal interfaces compared to the previous project. All innovative solutions for ADAS that are developed in the project will also be evaluated with drivers in the loop. These evaluations are conducted in different stages where the last step is prototype evaluation in an actual vehicle on the road (public road or on test track). Expected results include (1.) improved ADAS and HMI functionality, (2.) innovative driver and cab monitoring strategies, and (3.) testable prototypes in vehicles.
