AutoMate Automation as accepted and Trusted TeamMate to enhance traffic safety and efficiency


The success of future more complex and more automated vehicles will depend on how well they interact, communicate, and cooperate with humans both inside and outside the vehicle. Driver and automation have to be considered as team members who share the driving task and who both are responsible for the safety of driving. The object of design is not the automation system but the overall driver-automation team.


AutoMate will create a highly reliable automated driving system that users can understand, accept, trust and eventually will use regularly.
