Holistic Approach for Driver Role Integration and Automation Allocation for European Mobility Needs


Automated driving cars will pave the way to improved traffic flows, mobility and increased road safety since the vast majority of accidents are attributable to driver error. What will be the role of the driver within automated driving systems? The EU-funded HADRIAN project seeks to answer this question. It will develop a holistic driving system solution, focusing on the utility of dynamically adjusting (fluid) human-machine interfaces that take environmental and driver conditions into account. The project will increase the safety of automated driving. The project's findings (demonstrators and metrics) will be translated into guidelines and recommendations.
