Car automation is a remarkable comfort feature and hence spreading out in new passenger car models. So called level 3 automation (SAE) requires driver attention even during the automation, and transition of control happens at high speeds with and without timely warnings. Even though drivers shall be ready to take back control at any [...]
24-26 October, Bologna. The Italian motorcycle brand Ducati hosted an interesting plenary meeting in their headquarters of Borgo Panigale, close to the legendary factory and next to the museum where the "Ducati 60 - la prima motocicletta", the famous "Desmosedici" or the current Andrea Dovizioso's MotoGP bike are sharing the same room!

ADAS&ME project was well represented by our coordinator Anna Anund and Christer Ahlström as well. The event is designed to bring participants - from government, industry and research centers [...]
AutoMate’s objective is to develop, evaluate and demonstrate the “TeamMate Car” concept: driver and automation are seen as members of one team and they share the driving task – perception, decision-making, and vehicle control. Through the achievement of this main objective, AutoMate is expected to positively impact several aspects: Improve road safety, by reducing both human errors [...]
This is not a common news of ADAS&ME project. The consortium is developing a number of actions in the most of work packages and use cases and preparing the next plenary meeting that will take place in Bologna at the end of this month.

These days Scania is carrying out stage 2 data collections in Use Case A. About 30 drivers will join the passenger seat in a real truck and perform a simulated 90 minute drive while the truck is driven by a confederate driver who is blind for the experimental conditions. Some will drive for the [...]
PROSPECT (Proactive Safety for Pedestrians and Cyclists) aims at developing a new generation of proactive safety systems to protect Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs), with an emphasis on pedestrians and cyclists. PROSPECT's starting point is a better understanding of relevant VRU accident scenarios (combining multiple European accident studies with urban naturalistic observations). Improved VRU sensing [...]
Managing Automated Vehicles Enhances Network (MAVEN) project is exploring the paradigm of a hierarchical self-organizing system: multi-level, top-down guidance of self-organizing dynamic platoons of cooperative automated vehicles. To this end the project is developing a generic multi-level system for the guidance of highly automated vehicles, applied to dynamic platoons at signalized intersections and signalized [...]
Today is the world's emoji day but... What is the relationship between emojis and ADAS&ME project? Future drivers will be able to get a feedback on their current mental and physical state while driving and while being driven. A simple, efficient and subtle way to do this is by the use of Emojis that [...]
