European Conference on Human Centred Design for Intelligent Transport Systems

Event date


The widespread deployment of in-vehicle driver information systems and the emergence of advanced driver assistance systems are transforming road transport. Through these Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), a range of services is offered to the driver with the objective of facilitating the driving task and improving travel safety. Nevertheless, these developments raise numerous questions about acceptance and possible effects and their impact on drivers’ behaviour and attitudes. All this encourages a Human Centred Design approach, in which ITS are designed according to driver needs and are not driven by technological capabilities.

For this reason, the HUMANIST Virtual Centre of Excellence is organising a conference to address the following scientific topics related to Human Centred Design for Intelligent Transport Systems:

Effects of ITS on driver behaviour and interaction with the systems

Tools and methodologies for safety and usability assessement

Modelling of drivers' behaviour for ITS design

Diversity and specificity of road user groups

Drivers' needs and acceptance of assistance functions

Green ITS to meet new driver needs

Field Operational Tests and Naturalistic Driving studies

ITS and traffic management

Human-Centered System Integration and Product maturity

Generic user Interfaces for Assistance Systems
