Final event of the ADAS&ME H2020 project
The EU-funded (Horizon 2020) ADAS&ME EU project held its final event on 3 December 2019 at the consortium partner IDIADA HQ’s facilities in Barcelona. The project encompasses a wide range of different use cases involving long haul truck journeys, motorcycle touring, bus driving, a battery electric car, and a conventional car. For each use case, the technical integration and preparation for testing has been performed, and the project impact has been assessed regarding safety and mobility effects on road users. More detail about the project use cases is available on here.
The evaluation stage of the project has involved the framework for data collection and testing protocol. Final evaluation activities have involved the realisation of test activities at proving ground facilities and public roads – testing vehicles with naïve drivers across the different vehicle types involved in the project.
ADAS&ME (Adaptive ADAS to support incapacitated drivers &Mitigate Effectively risks through tailor made HMI under automation; September 2016-February 2020) is a Horizon 2020-funded project which aims to combine the knowledge of the evaluation of driver state with the situational and environmental assessment to manage specific interaction strategies. These include both HMI and automated functions, with the intention of ensuring safer and more efficient roads for all users. This works by offering systems that aim to mitigate the effects of adverse driver states on the capability of the driver to safely control a vehicle.
