On the 13th of April the Final Event of the MEDIATOR project took place at The Hague Public Transport Museum. The final event highlighted the project results and panel discussions explored the (scientific) opportunities and challenges of automated driving.
In a four-year project funded by the European Commission, coordinated by SWOV Institute for Road Safety Research and funded by the European Commission, MEDIATOR developed working prototypes and validated the system through studies involving virtual reality, driving simulators, on-road tests, and computer simulations. The MEDIATOR system constantly monitors both the driver and the automated systems, mediating between them while considering the driving context.
With input from industry and policy makers, MEDIATOR has produced guidelines for measuring degraded driver performance, safe user-centered human-machine interface design, and roadmaps for further system exploitation. MEDIATOR is thus paving the way for a safe and reliable future in vehicle automation.
