HARMONISE - Safe interaction with different levels of automation

Reference number
Coordinator Volvo Technology AB - Volvo GTT
Funding from Vinnova SEK 4 626 213
Project duration January 2017 - December 2020
Status Completed
Venture Traffic safety and automated vehicles -FFI

Purpose and goal

The HARMONISE studies have aimed toward both theoretical insight and experimental results. On the theoretical side, the topic of embodied cognition and its design implications for vehicle automation have been investigated, and State-of-the-Art in the market regarding vehicle automation has been described. On the experimental side, a total of five studies have been carried out. Overall, we believe HARMONISE largely has fulfilled its initial objectives. Some studies did not end up with the expected conclusions, but that is a natural hazard in science to be embraced and learned from.

Planned approach and implementation

Most of the HARMONISE work followed the initial workplan. One of the work packages had to alter direction halfway, when a change in function implementation rendered the old research question for that work package invalid, but it was possible to generate a new research question in the same spirit which still lead to HARMONISE relevant results. As a result of this change,
