Project Objectives

The general objective of the AIDE IP is to generate the knowledge and develop the methodologies and human machine interface technologies required for safe and efficient integration of multiple driver assistance and information functions into the driving environment.
The general objective of the AIDE IP is to generate the knowledge and develop the methodologies and human machine interface technologies required for safe and efficient integration of multiple driver assistance and information functions into the driving environment.
Specifically, the goal of the IP is to design, develop and validate a generic Adaptive Integrated Driver-vehicle InterfacE (AIDE) that...
  • maximises the efficiency of individual and combined advanced driver assistance systems by means of innovative, integrated and adaptive, human-machine interface concepts that prevent negative behavioural effects (e.g. under-load, over-reliance and safety margin compensation) and maximises positive effects (e.g. enhanced situational awareness), thereby enhancing the safety benefits of these systems. AIDE should demonstrate significantly enhanced safety benefits compared to existing solutions.
  • reduces the level of workload and distraction related to the interaction with individual and combined in-vehicle information and nomad devices, thereby reducing the number of road accidents. AIDE should demonstrate a significant reduction in the imposed workload and distraction compared to existing solutions.
  • enables the potential benefits of new in-vehicle technologies and nomad devices in terms of mobility and comfort, without compromising safety. AIDE should demonstrate that the benefits of new in-vehicle technologies could be enjoyed without increased accidents risk.


Moreover, the concepts and technologies developed should have high product-feasibility in order to penetrate the market and contribute significantly towards the EC goal of 50% reduction of fatalities by 2010.

In order to reach these objectives, three sub-goals have been defined:
  • Development of a model for prediction of behavioural effects of driver assistance and information systems. This model will be the basis for the design of the adaptive integrated driver-vehicle interface.
  • Development of a generic, industrially applicable, methodology for the evaluation of road vehicle human-machine interfaces with respect to safety. This methodology will be used for verifying the quantified goals stated above.
  • Design, development and evaluation of three prototype vehicles, one city car, one luxury car and one heavy truck, with the adaptive integrated driver-vehicle interface implemented.
