Easing and avoiding Switching moments

Reference number 2018-04727
Coordinator Talkamatic AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 200 000
Project duration December 2018 - January 2019
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

In the project we will make a first demo/PoC showing opportunities with both driver- and system-initiated dialogue (mixed initiative) in connection to driver/autonomous drive switching moments. We will create a scenario where these features will be demonstrated in a relevant scenario. What we want to show is how dialogue can be used to either avoid switching moments or ease the experience of "driver to car" and “car to driver" switching moments. This is all done to improve the driver’s both physical and emotional experience.

Expected results and effects

We´re expecting the results to provide a first look into how a dialogue based user-car interaction can help improve understanding between driver and car and thereby avoid potential dangerous situations and driver stress. We also expect our project partners to get a better understanding of what next generation of "dialogue first" interfaces can add to a driver environment.

Planned approach and implementation

1 Setting the dialogues Going through and setting the scope for the dialogues to be implemented. Delivered as example dialogue scripts. 2 Implementing the dialogues Creating functional demos for the selected demo cases that can be run on a stand-alone test platform. 3 Next generation dialogues Presenting further, more sophisticated, dialogue examples that shows further potential scenarios that can be handled through dialogue between driver and car. Delivered as example dialogue scripts.
