AIDE is an integrated project funded by the EC in the 6
Framework Programme. The project, which involves 30 partners including all major European vehicle manufacturers, deals with behavioural and technical issues related to automotive human-machine interface (HMI) design, with a particular focus on HMI integration and adaptation. The project involves tightly integrated empirical research, driver behaviour modelling and methodological- as well technological development. This paper provides an overview of the mid-term results achieved about half-way through the four-year project.
