Autoliv joins research program on human user's interaction with autonomous driving

Exhibitor from the Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Autoliv has joined an international research program that explores human users’ interaction with autonomous vehicles. The program, called ADAS&ME, involves 30 partners from 11 countries and is led by Sweden's National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI).

Autonomous carIt is claimed that human errors cause up to 95% of all fatal crashes. Therefore, the introduction of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is expected to increase road safety by informing or warning the driver of hazards and intervening when necessaryd. In the future, ADAS will not only take the traffic and weather conditions into account, but also consider things such as fatigue, stress and distraction that can affect a driver. 

“To increase road safety and save even more lives, we need to understand how the driver interacts with highly automated driving solutions. This project is also about learning how driver collaboration with the technology can be facilitated,” says Camilla Apoy, Research Project Leader at Autoliv.

Autoliv, with a history of more than 60 years of developing safety technologies for the world's car makers, is leading the work on HMI Actions and Transitions, aiming to develop and define driver/vehicle interaction strategies. Autoliv's researchers are also heavily involved in developing the framework for driver state monitoring.
