The EU-funded MEDIATOR project, coordinated by SWOV, is developing a system that mediates between human driver and the vehicle automation to ensure safe, real-time switching between the two, based on who is fittest to drive. Currently, the prototypes of the four main system components and their integration are getting shape.
