The challenges related to the development of automated vehicles are not only of a technical nature, but also affect the quality of on-board interaction. The role of the HMI is crucial to manage unexpected events and ensure a safe and smooth transition of control. The workshop will promote and discuss the approach used in the HMI design for autonomous vehicles realized from the European projects ADAS&ME and AutoMate. ADAS&ME is dedicated to the creation of new driver state adaptive ADAS that incorporate driver/rider state, the situational and environmental context, as well as the adaptive interaction to automatically transfer control. AutoMate will enhance safety by using the strength of both the automation and driver in a dynamic situation dependent way. In the workshop the main challenges emerged in the projects will be discussed with the audience, to obtain feedbacks and enhancements, and to highlight themes and strategies not yet emerged.
