Welcome to AdVitam Project Website


AdVitam stands for Adaptive Driver-Vehicule InTerAction to Make future driving safer. It is a 4 years (2018-2022) research project co-funded by Hasler Fundation.

AdVitam explores how human-vehicle interface (HVI) can be designed at different level of attention in shared control driving to keep the driver at the optimum cognitive load and to fully support the potential of semi-automated driving.

The project aims at contributing to the vision of a car as a companion where the driver and the car work collaboratively and interactively as team-members to control the vehicle.

This project involves three PhD students. The first one works on multi-sensory experiences considering the entire car interior in order to support driver supervision tasks and increase situational awareness. The second one investigates how to use different modalities and combine them to improve the intervention of the driver during take-over requests. The third one studies how we can use several psychophysiological signals in order to assess the driver state in real-time.

The work of the three students will outcome in a novel collaborative interaction model between the driver and the vehicle in shared-control driving.


~7 May 2021~

We organized a workshop at CHI 2021 with the University of Messina (Italy), Distributed & Interactive Systems group. Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (Netherlands) and CNRS-SAMOVAR (France).

~Sep – Oct 2020~

We presented our simulator at GSGS. You can watch our video and check out our poster here:

~22 Oct 2019~

Check out our last video!

The various concepts of Human Vehicle Interaction developed for the project are presented. It also shows the physiological signals recorded throughout the experiments.

~22 Sep 2019~

The results of the Workshop on Explainable AI in Automated Driving: a User-Centered Interaction Approach we facilitated at the Automotive UI conference in Utrecht are available on this link.
Have a look at the great creations that were created this afternoon!
