Name of the Organisation: Politecnico di Milano iDrive Laboratory
Organisation Short Name: POLIMI iDrive
Organisation Type: HES
ACTIVITYTopic(s) of interest from 2018-2019 Transport Work Programme:
- MG-2-7-2019: Safety in an evolving road mobility environment
- DT-ART-03-2019: Human centred design for the new driver role in highly automated vehicles
Fields of Activity: Functional analyses of road transport infrastructures and their interaction with driver from the point of view of stress, fatigue, workload and driving attention; Evaluation of tools for driver monitoring from the point of view of their effectiveness and also of driver subjective perception; Simulation through virtual simulation of driving scenarios in urban contexts and evaluation of driver and passenger physiological reactions; Implementation of procedures for special driving (e.g. assisted or autonomous driving systems) and study of the reactions of drivers in relation with their choices in real contexts; Execution of surveys of diverse types through the equipped vehicle, among whom: dynamic surveys of traffic, urban and rural topographic surveys, carrying out specific campaigns for surveying urban emissions of buildings through heat sensors on scales today not yet feasible otherwise; Study of driver workload in crossing roundabouts (or other crucial points of road network) through simulation in virtual reality.
Skills and Experise Offered: A fixed structural component based on a virtual realty simulator aimed at the ex-ante test of expected behavioral models, the joined optimization of vehicle and road infrastructure, the increase of ex-post and in-itinere statistical significance of experiments carried out on roads;
A mobile component based on an instrumented vehicle aimed at measuring on field performance and reactions of drivers in different driving conditions and at collecting environmental data to be reproduced ex-post by simulation.
Keywords: driving simulation
driver physiological and psychological data collection
