Cognitive engineering for adaptive anti-collision systems

This paper describes a French national program called ARCOS involving 60 partners (industrials and public research centres). ARCOS aims at improving road safety on the basis of four main safety functions: (a) controlling inter-vehicle distances, (b) avoiding collision with obstacles, (c) avoiding lane departure, and (d) alerting other vehicles of accidents. The INRETS-LESCOT sub-project described in this paper is more particularly focused on collision avoidance problem. Synthetically, the idea is to develop an adaptive technology being able to assess the current driver needs in the current driving conditions. The global objective is to design and develop a diagnosis module of the driver's behaviour, in order to determine if these actions are relevant or not, by considering the current risk of collision. At last, this diagnosis will be also used to propose decision rules for managing man-machine interactions.
