BRAVE is a European Research and Innovation project whose objective is to promote the acceptance of highly automated vehicles by developing innovative Human Machine Interfaces. The subject is approached from both a technological and a societal point of view, with the user being taken into account from the very first stages of the approach and throughout the process. Mov’eo is one of the partners in this project, which began in June 2017 and is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme. After more than 3 years of work, the project will end in February 2021. In this last straight line, many results are already available.
The content of most deliverables is public
All elements are available on the project’s website
Among the deliverables, three documents are directly related to Automated Vehicles’s acceptance, with :
- A large literature review
- A summary of the study carried out among experts and stakeholders
- A summary of the study carried out on a population sample
There are also several deliverables on vehicle-driver interactions and driver monitoring, prediction of the intentions of vulnerable users and vehicles in the environment close to the automated vehicle, as well as reports on tests carried out on simulators, on circuits and in real conditions, and the associated users’ feedback.
Mov’eo in this project
Mov’eo is involved in the consortium of this project, and in particular ensures :
- Communication actions and dissemination of results
- The link with the Automobile and Mobility ecosystem, particularly the manufacturers, to encourage the transfer of results to industry.
- The management of the project Advisory Board and the formulation of recommendations for the lines of research.
