This contribution provides a review of fundamental goals, development and future perspectives of driver assistance systems. Mobility is a fundamental desire of mankind. Virtually any society strives for safe and efficient mobility at low ecological and economic costs. Nevertheless, its technical implementation significantly differs among societies,(More)
To minimize the mental workload for the driver and to keep the increasing amount of information easily accessible, sophisticated display and interaction techniques are essential. This contribution focuses on a user-centered analysis for an authoritative grading of head-up displays (HUDs) in cars. Two studies delivered the evaluation data. In a field test,(More)
The goal of the project "Gaze Controlled Interaction with Peripheral Devices" was to extend the capability of the head based eye tracking system DIKABLIS to detect the gaze allocation to previously defined Areas of Interest (AOI) in real time. This allows initiating various events or commands when a test person is wearing the head unit and the gaze is(More)
The general objective of the AIDE (Adaptive Integrated Driver-vehicle InterfacE) Integrated Project, funded within the EU 6:th Framework Programme (FP6), is to develop humanmachine interaction (HMI) methodologies and technologies for the safe and efficient integration of driver assistance and information systems (including nomad devices) in future vehicles.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to quantify the impact of traffic density and verbal tasks on takeover performance in highly automated driving. BACKGROUND In highly automated vehicles, the driver has to occasionally take over vehicle control when approaching system limits. To ensure safety, the ability of the driver to regain control of the driving(More)
Detection response tasks (DRTs) have been used in many different laboratory settings and their usage continues to spread. The degree to which the DRT is replicable and produces concurring results is an important characteristic of its validity. The current article presents a comparison of DRT performance across two separate experimental settings. Results are(More)
Although research on adaptive systems has begun only recently, studies have shown the benefits of using adaptive systems. However most of those studies have examined systems with and without adaptive qualities, disregarding additional factors that may influence the interaction. This study presents a first step towards a more comprehensive evaluation of(More)
Modeling and predicting human behavior is indispensable when industrial robots interacting with human operators are to be manipulated safely and efficiently. One challenge is that human operators tend to follow different motion patterns, depending on their intention and the structure of the environment. This precludes the use of classical estimation(More)
