Name of the Organisation: Laboratory of Industrial Neuroscience -Dept. Molecular Medicine - University of Rome Sapienza
Organisation Short Name: DMM
Organisation Type: HES
ACTIVITYTopic(s) of interest from 2018-2019 Transport Work Programme:
- DT-ART-03-2019: Human centred design for the new driver role in highly automated vehicles
- DT-ART-04-2019: Developing and testing shared, connected and cooperative automated vehicle fleets in urban areas for the mobility of all
- DT-ART-05-2020 - Efficient and safe connected and automated heavy-duty vehicles in real logistics operations
- DT-ART-06-2020: Large-scale, cross-border demonstration of connected and highly automated driving functions for passenger cars
Fields of Activity: Laboratory of Industrial Neuroscience at the Dept of Molecular Medicine (DMM) is interested in the measuring and detect mental states of normal people during their work and daily activities. In particular, it has an expertise since 30 years (first publications on scientific journal in the 1986 and the latest in the 2019) in measuring brain activity in humans. Recently, in the last 6 years the DMM was devoted to the study of cerebral and emotional activity in humans in the transport systems (including automotive, aircrafts, trains). Human Factors measure of pilots/drivers in the transport systems. Capabilty to measures and generate model of cognitive workload,
Skills and Experise Offered: DMM could measure the mental states of pilots/drivers or passengers in future automotive environments by using wearable and easy to use devices. DMM offers to the project the capability to assess the mental workload, the state of attention, vigilance, emotions, level of distraction of the humans inside the future car's interiors or the transport systems of the future.
DMM has a 30 years experience and 250 scientific papers published on international research journals on the issues of evaluating mental activity in humans.
DMM has participated in several H2020 projects in the transport area as well as in FP7.
Keywords: Mental workload
