interactIVe presented projects results during the 8th ITS European Congress June 6th to 9th 2011 in Lyon, France during the
Special Session 42 - Avoiding accidents by enhanced perception and active interventions: a look into the future of intelligent vehicles Thursday June 9th 09.00 – 10.30.
The session was hosted by interactIVe and merged with a presentation of the project MINIFAROS.
Perception systems that make use of sensor data fusion are more accurate, reliable and comprehensive than single-sensor systems. Apart from established sensor technologies like radar and vision, new information sources such as digital map databases and v2x communication will definitely enhance the capacity of environment perception systems. Significant effort should be devoted to the enhancement and integration of the perception layer in the future. In this session approaches to enhancing the perception layer were discussed in detail, together with novel techniques in terms of optics, solutions for replacing the scanning mirror, electronics and possible automotive applications, where such sensors can be used.
Well designed human-vehicle interfaces of ADAS determine the level of user acceptance and actual deployment. Initial information, warning and intervention strategies for automotive applications were presented as well as relevant applications from industrial partners and their future applicability.
Emilio Dávila González from the European Commission moderated the session. The speakers were
• Aria Etemad, Senior Research Coordinator, Ford Research and Advanced Engineering Europe, Germany
• Angelos Amditis, Researcher Director, Institute of Communications and Computer / Uri Iurgel, Algorithm Engineer, Delphi, Germany
• Emma Johansson, Human Factors specialist, Volvo Technology, Sweden
