Autoliv joins research program on human user’s interaction with autonomous driving
(Stockholm, Sweden, November 11, 2016) – – – Autoliv, Inc. (NYSE: ALV and SSE: ALIVsdb), the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems, joins international research program about human user’s interaction with autonomous vehicles. The program, called ADAS&ME, involves 30 partners from 11 different countries and is led by Sweden’s National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI).
Human errors are claimed to cause up to 95% of all fatal crashes. The introduction of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is expected to increase road safety by informing or warning the driver, and intervene when needed. In the future, ADAS will not only take the traffic and weather conditions into account, but also various states of the driver, such as fatigue, stress and inattention.
“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 more than 60 years of development of safety technologies to 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.
