Role in the project

Bordeaux-INP will define, prototype, develop (and test) a new concept of Human Interactions, able to optimize user acceptability of the ALFRED and considering four complementary concepts, resulting from the complementary work of the other laboratories:

  • The definition of a ride comfort model algorithms.

  • The development of a pleasant ambient setting,

  • The definition of a HMI conceptual model based on a cognitive approach and integrating the 2 previous dimensions,

  • The integration and the prototyping of a smart multisensory HMI.

Bordeaux-INP will participate in the study the cognitive state of the user with other scientific partners in the area of emotions.

The main tasks foreseen for Bordeaux-INP in the project are:

  • Realize a state-of-the art about new human interactions which are taking into account the cognitive state of the users in autonomous vehicle

  • Define a HMI conceptual model taking into account: user cognitive needs, user emotional response, ride comfort algorithms and ambient comfort. Identify the various strategies and tools able to recover or avoid negative driver and passenger experiences.

  • Prototype and develop iteratively, the Human Interactions concept. Design of a smart and multimodal HMI in which each partners will integrate multi-sensor to ensure an acceptable ALFRED model.

  • Participation in exploitation related activities.

Partner description

Bordeaux-INP and more specifically IMS Laboratory:

The Cognitive Engineering Research group (CIH) is part of the IMS laboratory UMR CNRS 5218 belonging to Bordeaux-INP. The group is multidisciplinary (psychology, computer science, biology, information and communication, robotics, educational sciences). On this basis, we strive to develop inter or transdisciplinary approaches.

The scientific orientations of the CIH cognitive and human engineering team focus mainly (but not exclusively) on: 1) Human-System Integration (IHS) and the uses of digital technologies, 2) The design and development of methods of study of human-systems interaction; 3) The study and design of human augmentation technologies (especially digital).

Third party, CATIE:

CATIE is a non-profit organization, which was created in 2014 by the Aquitaine Region to ensure the technological transfer of knowledge between public research laboratories and regional SMEs specialized in ICT. In the context of the project, CATIE will use its TU of “Human System Interaction”. The objective of this TU is to give value to the projects through the understanding of both Human and his environment.
