ADAS&ME project has again been featured in a relevant publication: Horizon, the EU research and innovation. The article “Fit to drive? The car will judge” drawn up by the science journalist Julianna Photopoulos is focused on the potential of automation to reduce the number of fatalities in European roads towards the Zero Vision objective.
The report includes information about the sensor-based systems developed in ADAS&ME framework to ensure a safe transition from level 2 of automation to level 3. The magazine highlights the seven ADAS&ME use cases with special attention on car and motorbike use cases where different types of sensors monitor driver/rider state to detect fatigue, stress or sleepiness.
The report also shows several statements from ADAS&ME project coordinator Dr. Anna Anund. The sentences below specify two of the main objectives of the EU funded project:
‘We want to make sure that we don’t give the control back to drivers that are not fit to drive.’
‘It’s important to develop systems where your individual preferences and behaviors are incorporated,’ said Dr Anund. ‘So we will also focus on individualizing the detection system but also the HMI (human-computer interaction).’
The report also includes information from other scientific studies about road safety and informs about the 2nd EUCAD Conference, where ADAS&ME will be present.
