Smart technologies for improving driver behaviour: Technological, psychological, and ethical perspectives

30th – 31st October 2014

Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands

Abstract Deadline: 30th may 2014

Keynote Speakers: Joel Anderson, University of Utrecht (Ethics), Manfred Tscheligi, University of Salzburg (Psychology), Keynote-Speaker Automotive Technology & Design (TBA)

With recent technological developments we can improve road safety, mobility, and energy efficiency through influencing the driver. The attempt to influence driver behaviour can be placed in broader trends within traffic management. We witness a shift from centralized to decentralized traffic management. The communication between vehicles, between vehicles and infrastructure, the increasing connectivity and the automatisation of driver tasks offer new opportunities and challenges for traffic management and for targeting driver behaviour.

On the one hand, technologies have been developed that influence drivers by for instance by giving them positive or negative feedback: persuasive technologies. On the other hand, technologies have been introduced in cars that (partly) take over the task of driving: automation technologies. This conference focuses on the technical, psychological, and ethical issues regarding the use of both types of technologies in cars to influence the driver of the future.
