CORD – Cognitive assessment of Remote Drive

This pre-study will test a new approach based on Neuroscience-AI to see how it could be used in the context of semi-autonomous and remote driving.

In order to have a smooth transition from the manual driving (SAE Level 1) to fully autonomous mobility (SAE Level 5), which will might only become available around 2052*, it is inevitable to pass through a transition phase. An enabler for this transition is the concept of remote and semi-autonomous driving. Therefore, having proper tools and methods to facilitate this transition in a safe manner by considering all the safety aspects is a demand from all stakeholders including end users, municipalities, and legislator. Considering that this pre-study is going to assess the feasibility of adapting a Neuroscience-AI based technology within the remote driving context, the main focus areas of this pre-study are studying the feasibility of tracking & evaluating the remote drivers’ cognitive performance in different operating conditions, as well as Human-Machine Interaction which will directly relate to the safety aspect of autonomous mobility.

This pre-study projects links to and collaborate with the following ITRL projects, REDO , MERGEN  and AVTCT .
