Enhanced ADAS: Improving drivers’ experience, acceptance and trust in assistance systems
By utilizing human-centric methodologies, the SAFER researchers will specify drivers’ support needs in selected use cases and integrate existing systems for environmental sensing, vehicle behavior, driver monitoring and maps into proof-of-concept ADAS-prototypes with novel threat assessment and dynamic driver-vehicle interaction strategies. These will be evaluated with drivers on public road and/or test track using evaluation methodologies specified in the project.
The expected results include for example:
a) novel knowledge on how driver-vehicle interactions need to be designed,
b) understanding of how threat assessment can be enhanced by extending situation awareness in terms of real-time driver behavior and maps,
c) proof-of-concept prototypes of enhanced ADAS with dynamic driver-vehicle interaction strategies (human-machine interfaces and/or vehicle behavior), e) evaluation methodologies for enhanced ADAS
d) quantified effects of enhanced ADAS in terms of safety, efficiency and drivers’ experience, acceptance and trust.
