MOBILE-LAB – ARIEL UNIVERSITY
A ‘Mobile Laboratory’ for the Development of Autonomous Capabilities
The National Institute for Transportation Innovation has awarded a grant to a research team from Ariel University for building and designing a Mobile Laboratory (Mobile-Lab) to promote research and development of autonomous driving vehicles.
The Mobile-Lab is shaped by the understanding that the human driver would continue to play a central role during the transition to full autonomy. Based on this understanding, a series of studies are planned to support the design of semi-autonomous vehicle-human driver interaction, to enhance autonomous control and autonomous decision making, and to explore the human aspects of trust and adoption of autonomous vehicles.
The interdisciplinary research team includes experts in Robotics, Computer Science, and Human Factors scientists with experience in designing interfaces, feedback systems, and driver-intervention schemas.
The research team is looking for sponsorships to expand the battery of sensors, to support ongoing and planned research projects and to build an outreaching program that would encourage industry partners to use the Mobile-Lab for the development of advanced driving assistance systems and autonomous capabilities.
