i-DREAMS prepares driving simulator and pilot vehicles for monitoring

The Horizon 2020 i-DREAMS project is making progress. Last week, a first set of essential technologies was installed in the driving simulator and 2 pilot vehicles. These systems will be used to monitor the complexity of tasks that are executed in a car and the drivers' skills. This way the i-DREAMS partners can study, under real-life and simulated conditions, the complex interaction between driver, vehicle and environment. The goal is to come up with innovative interventions (during the tri...

New opportunities to tackle road safety

Several factors of driver state negatively impact road safety, such as distraction (in-vehicle or external), fatigue and drowsiness, health concerns (e.g. illness, frailty, cognitive state) and extreme emotions (e.g. anxiety, stress, anger). Moreover, differences in socio-cultural factors are still among the main determinants of road risks. At the same time, technological developments make massive and detailed operator performance data easily available. For example via new in-vehicle sensors tha...
