2nd Workshop On Human Factors In Intelligent Vehicles



June 23, 2013, Gold Coast, Australia

To be held at the 2013 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium, IV’13

June 23-26, 2013, Gold Coast, Australia


SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 15th, 2013


This workshop is promoted by IEEE ITS Society’s Artificial
Transportation Systems and Simulation (ATSS) Technical Activities Sub-Committee. It is
the second edition to be co-placed with the 2013 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles
Symposium, to be held in the Gold Coast, Australia, June 23-26, 2013.

The Workshop on Human Factors in Intelligent Vehicles (HFIV’13) aims to
foster discussion on issues related to the analysis of human factors in
the design and evaluation of intelligent vehicles (IV) technologies, in a
wide spectrum of applications and in different dimensions. It is expected to
build upon a proper environment to disseminate knowledge and motivate
interactions among the technical and scientific communities,
practitioners and students, allowing state-of-the-art concepts and advances to be
further developed and enhanced. IV technologies have experienced a great
improvement in the last couple of decades, turning vehicles into more interactive
counterparts in transportation and mobility systems. However, the
impact of such technologies on traffic awareness for the driver and driver’s
behavior towards improving driving performance and reducing road accidents still
demands proper tools and approaches. While the feasibility of
incorporating new technology-driven functionality to vehicles has played a central
role in the automotive design, not always safety issues related to interaction
with the new in-vehicle systems have been taken into consideration.
Additionally, other aspects are equally important and need to be analyzed, such as
the impact technologies that support specific driving functions play on the
overall driving task, as well as their impact on the transportation
system overall performance. Besides current industrial achievements that
feature today’s vehicles with a number of important driving assistance systems,
the perspective of autonomous driving vehicles populating urban environment
pose even more challenging issues.

Thus, the information and functionality that relies on new ways of
communication has to be presented in a non-intrusive way that complies
with specific design requirements. A system that guarantees efficiency of
use, comfort and user satisfaction can contribute to a more conscious
driving behavior that would directly result from the adoption of IV


The HFIV’13 welcomes and encourages contributions reporting on original
research, work under development and experiments of different fields
related to Human Factors.

Some topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

* Intelligent user interfaces

* Human-machine interaction

* Human-in-the-loop simulation

* Cognitive aspects of driving

* Human behavior and capability, affecting system’s design and

* Modeling and simulation in driver’s behavior analysis

* Tools and approaches to analyze human factors

* Ergonomics of traveler information systems

* Behavioral elicitation and influence

* Anthropometric layout of vehicular technical systems

* Methodologies to optimize overall system performance

* Mixed Reality

* Cross-Cultural Design

* Augmented Cognition

* User Experience and Usability

* Computer Aided Ergonomics Analysis

* Cognitive Modeling

* Effects of in-vehicle systems on driver performance

* Tools and methodologies for usability assessment

* Input/Output modalities in system ergonomic design

* Leaning, Anticipating, Adapting balance

* Methodologies for driver training


Prospective authors are invited to submit contributions reporting on
their current research and ideas that motivate discussion during the workshop. Each paper will  be analyzed by an International Program Committee according to their relevance and potential contribution.

Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings in a
digital format and will be published in IEEE explore.

Selected high quality papers of the Workshop will have a publication
opportunity in a special issue of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation
Systems Magazine.

Authors must follow the IEEE Conference format in the preparation of
their manuscripts of maximum 6 pages in standard IEEE double column PDF format via the Papercept system for peer-review by the workshop International Program Committee.

The code to upload the papers is the following: 31mbi

All accepted papers will imply that at least one of the co-authors
attends the workshop to present the work. Authors will be given a certain time
to orally present their papers and discussion will be actively motivated
among attendees.

Camera-ready manuscripts must be sent due on February 28th, 2013.

Further and up-to-date information can be found on the official web
site of the workshop at http://hfiv13.lfe.mw.tum.de
