The International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention aims to bring participants up-to-date on recent developments and trends in the field of inattention and distraction in driving, and to bring together researchers and practitioners. Participants will be invited to present and discuss current work covering basic and applied research, mitigation challenges, the latest policy developments, and priorities for research and countermeasures development.
DDI2017 conference topics include theory, measurement, effects, crash risks, and prevention/mitigation related to driver distraction and inattention. Presentations taking into account new forms of mobility (e.g. autonomous vehicles, electric vehicles, soft modes of transport, etc.), other road user groups (e.g. motorcyclists, bicyclists, pedestrians, etc.), new modes of HMI interaction (e.g. voice recognition, I-watches, gesturing, etc.), new sources of distraction from outside the vehicle (e.g. advertising on moving trucks, bus shelters, mobile trailers, etc.), and sources of distraction in domains other than transport (e.g. aviation, medicine, process control, etc.) are especially encouraged.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 610453.
