Autoliv and MIT AgeLab establish ADAS research deal

Automotive safety systems company Autoliv is to collaborate with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on a semi-autonomous vehicle prototype that demonstrates future AI possibilities.

The two-year project aims to develop an AI system that understands and manages the state of the driver to create a safe and enjoyable driving experience.

“It is clear that the global focus on autonomous vehicles must begin to consider increased investment in human centered vehicle systems that support appropriate driver engagement through trusted safety and an enjoyable mobility experience,” said Bryan Reimer, a research scientist at MIT.

“We believe that drivers will be traversing the world’s roadways for decades to come as higher levels of automation steadily increases.”

The technology will use deep learning algorithms to enable effective communication and transfer of control between the car and driver. This means safe and reliable semi-autonomous driving, thanks to the cars ability to monitor driver gaze, emotion, cognitive load, hand position and posture.

Lex Fridman at MIT is optimistic about the deal. “We are looking to lead the world in the application of state-of-the art deep learning methods for semi-autonomous vehicle systems in a way that ensures the human being is the core focus of every algorithm and interface we build,” he said.

Ola Boström, research VP at Autoliv, said, “To save more lives, we need to establish trust between the driver and the car’s intelligence. I am confident that this collaboration with leading researchers will accelerate the industry’s ability to deliver future safety solutions.”
