European Conference on Human centred Design for intelligent transport systems


Conference scope


The widespread deployment of in-vehicle driver information systems and the emergence of advanced driver assistance systems are profoundly transforming road transport.

Through these Intelligent Transport Systems, a range of services are offered to the driver with the objective of facilitating the driving task and improving travel safety.

Nevertheless, these developments raise numerous questions about acceptability by drivers and their impact on drivers’ behaviour and attitudes.

All this argues for encouraging a Human Centred Design approach, in which ITS are designed according to driver needs and are not driven by technological capabilities.

That is the reason why the HUMANIST Network of Excellence is organising a conference on this topic.

During the conference, the followed scientific topics related to Human Centred Design for Intelligent Transport Systems will be dealt with:

  • Identification of drivers’ needs
  • Specification of new modalities of human-machine interaction
  • Modelling of drivers’ behaviour and their interaction with ITS
  • Development of innovative tools and methodologies for ITS design
  • Analysis of ITS impact on drivers’ behaviour and road safety
  • Strengthening driver awareness of ITS benefits
