Multi-agent research in automotive
SUSTAINABLE TRANSFORMATION SEMINARS
The Sustainable Transformation Seminars autumn 2023 series forth seminar is held by speaker Pavlo Bazilinskyy, Eindhoven University of Technology, with the title "Multi-agent research in automotive". The format is a 25-minute presentation and 20 minutes of guided and open discussion with a KTH moderator/host.
Time: Fri 2023-12-01 12.15 - 13.00
Participating: Pavlo Bazilinskyy, Eindhoven University of Technology
The Sustainable Transformation Seminars autumn 2023 series is held monthly, usually on a Friday. The seminar series will continue to be online.
Automated driving will reduce road fatalities by 95 per cent, eradicate traffic jams, turn parking spaces into parks, make air cleaner, and free up our time used for commuting. Most of the experiments in current automotive research feature one, maybe two, human participants. But, think about driving around your town. Traffic situations are very complicated. And being able to perform experiments with multiple participants is essential for understanding the mechanics of communication of situation awareness and collaborative decision-making in both modern and future traffic.
During the talk, I will present the open-source coupled simulator, which allows to conduct experiments with a virtually unlimited number of human (and automated) agents. To demonstrate the capabilities of the tool, I will introduce two experiments performed with the simulator: (1) where eye contact between a driver of an automated car and a pedestrian was visualised to decide the yielding behaviour of the vehicle; (2) where the effectiveness of an external Human-Machine Interfaces was tested during a critical evasive manoeuvre.
