AIDE - Adaptive Integrated Driver-vehicle InterfacE

AIDE IP generates the knowledge and develops methodologies and human-machine interface technologies required for safe and efficient integration of ADAS, IVIS and nomad devices into the driving environment.

The objectives of AIDE are
  • to maximise the efficiency, and hence the safety benefits, of advanced driver assistance systems,
  • to minimise the level of workload and distraction imposed by in-vehicle information systems and nomad devices and
  • to enable the potential benefits of new in-vehicle technologies and nomad devices in terms of mobility and comfort.

AIDE Final Workshop and Exhibition – Towards Future Automotive HMI AIDE Final Workshop and Exhibition – Towards Future Automotive HMI

The AIDE consortium is pleased to announce the realization of the AIDE Final Workshop and Exhibition: “Towards Future Automotive HMI”, held at the Volvo Technology premises in Gothenburg, Sweden, from Tuesday the 15th of April, to Wednesday the 16th of April, 2008.
The AIDE final Workshop achieved to bring together all stakeholders in the area of automotive HMI research, such as automotive HMI experts and developers; senior representatives at companies involved in automotive HMI R&D and representatives from the European Commission. More than 170 participants followed the AIDE workshop, exhibition and poster sessions.
During the workshop, the AIDE project concept, as well as the results of the AIDE project, were presented and discussed. Information from related efforts outside the project (European and worldwide) was also presented, and future challenges and research needs within automotive HMI have been discussed.The event was followed by the final review of the AIDE IP which has successfully concluded its activities.

AIDE Final Workshop and Exhibition – Towards Future Automotive HMI Nomadic Device Forum Plenary Meeting, 10 April 2008

The plenary meeting of the Nomadic Device Forum took place in Brussels at 10 April 2008, at ACEA premises. A group of high level representatives of key stakeholders met to discuss the trends of the in-vehicle use of nomadic devices, the future of the nomadic devices forum after the completion of AIDE IP and the Terms of Reference of the new Forum (under the E-SAFETY Forum). Also the preparation of a Memorandum of Understanding between key stakeholders for the adoption of the ESoP 2 principles in the integration of Nomadic Devices inside vehicles was discussed.

VTEC AIDE demonstrator AIDE at the EUCAR Reception & Conference event in Brussels

At the EUCAR Reception & Conference event on November 7-8 in Brussels AIDE will be represented by a poster, the VTEC truck demonstrator and a truck simulator with selected AIDE functions. The project coordinator, Gustav Markkula, will give a presentation in the conference session on “Integrated Safety and Mobility - Research Projects & Needs”. Experts from the project consortium are available to explain and demonstrate the AIDE HMI concepts.

Future perspectives on cooperative systems for a safe and sustainable mobility Future perspectives on cooperative systems for a safe and sustainable mobility

AIDE was present at this International Workshop (May 24-25, 2007), organized by ATA (Italian Automotive Technical Association). Different stakeholders, working on the design and development of cooperative systems for future solutions, presented their activities in European funded projects, like SAFESPOT, CVIS and COOPERS. Luisa Andreone from Centro Ricerche Fiat, outlined the AIDE activities in Session 4 through a presentation entitled "Linking the vehicle to the driver, the AIDE project". Prospected solutions aim to enable a future breakthrough in road safety and traffic efficiency.
