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 [...]
Working with neuroscientists and designers, Ford brought the research to life with the unique Ford Performance Buzz Car: a customised Ford Focus RS incorporating wearable and artificial intelligence technology to animate the driver’s emotions in real time across the car’s exterior. Researchers at the Ford Research and Innovation Center in Aachen, Germany are already [...]
28 June, Crete. The warm temperatures in Crete welcomed ADAS&ME consortium to the 7th Plenary meeting organized by the local partner FORTH. The first day started with the parallel workshops of project Use Cases and an interesting presentation about Biomedical signal analysis in driver sleepiness carried out by VTI. It is expected that further [...]
The Autonomous Vehicle Interior Design & Technology Symposium took place in Stuttgart and it was dedicated to showcasing latest designs and innovations that will shape the future of vehicle interiors. ADAS&ME project was well represented by Frederik Diederichs (Fraunhofer IAO), Stella Nikolaou (CERTH) and Alessia Knauss (Autoliv). The conference was also a collaboration event [...]
TrustVehicle aims at advancing technical solutions for automated driving to better assess critical situations in mixed traffic scenarios and even under harsh environmental conditions, hence increasing safety far beyond the current levels. The project follows a user-centric approach and will provide solutions which significantly increase reliability and trustworthiness of automated vehicles and contribute to [...]
VI-DAS is positioned to address the goals of improved road safety by development and deployment of ADAS and navigation aids in societally acceptable and personalised manner, based on a reliable combination of the overall traffic scene understanding and essential consideration of the driver’s physical, mental, demographic and behavioural state. The objectives are listed below: [...]
TransAID develops and demonstrates traffic management procedures and protocols to enable smooth coexistence of automated, connected, and conventional vehicles, especially at Transition Areas. A hierarchical approach is followed where control actions are implemented at different layers including centralised traffic management, infrastructure, and vehicles. First, simulations are performed to find optimal infrastructure-assisted management solutions to control [...]
BRAVE’s approach assumes that the launch of automated vehicles on public roads will only be successful if a user centric approach is used where the technical aspects go hand in hand in compliance with societal values, user acceptance, behavioural intentions, road safety, social, economic, legal and ethical considerations. This approach must be understood as [...]
