Driver–Vehicle–Environment Monitoring for On-board Driver Support Systems: Lessons Learned From Design and Implementation

This paper presents efforts to implement in real time and for on-board applications a set of Driver–Vehicle–Environment (DVE) monitoring modules based on the theoretical work done in DVE modeling within the EC 6th FW co funded AIDE Integrated Project. First the need for such an implementation is discussed. Then the basic DVE modeling principles are introduced and analyzed. Based on that and on the overview of the theoretical work performed around the DVE modeling, the real time DVE monitoring modules developed in this project are presented and analyzed. To do this the DVE parameters needed to allow the required functionalities are discussed and analyzed. Special attention will be given to the use cases and scenarios of use for the real time DVE modules. This allows the reader to understand the functionalities that these modules enable in tomorrow's vehicles that will integrate a large degree of automation supported by advanced integrated and adaptive human machine interfaces (HMIs). The paper also presents examples of the functional and technical tests and validation results for some of the DVE modules. The paper concludes with a discussion around the lessons learned about the design and implementation of such systems. This also includes the next steps and open issues for research in order for these systems to become standard modules in tomorrow's vehicles.
