Cars of the future will smile back to you!

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 [...]

How vehicles can better understand drivers’ emotions?

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 [...]

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 [...]


Maroš Šefčovič tested an autonomous vehicle and spoke about ADAS&ME project

The Vice-President of the European Commission Maroš Šefčovič tested VEDECOM's Autonomous vehicle (level 5, without driver behind the steering wheel) driving through the beautiful streets of Leuven (Belgium) and speaking about the European projects (AUTOMATE and ADAS&ME) and discussing the EU budget for the future period (2021-2027). The VEDECOM's vehicle was equipped with, 5 [...]

A Wizard of Oz in ADAS&ME Project!?

Studying a driver’s state of mind during automation phases, which is at the heart of many use cases in ADAS&ME requires the ability to observe and record his/her behaviour in a natural environment. However, for safety issues, traditional autonomous vehicles do not allow the study of naïve drivers during automated driving phases in an [...]
