Human Machine Interaction Working Group to re-commence activities
Creation date: 05 January 2009
The Working Group on Human Machine Interaction (WG-HMI) which has been dormant since 2006 within the eSafety Forum, is ready to re-commence activities. The first meeting of the new working group is going to be held on 28 January 2009 at the European Commission premises in Brussels.
The WG-HMI focuses on the interaction between the driver and on-vehicle technology such as driver information and warning systems. The need for new activity in the area of HMI results from the outcome of publication of the “European Statement of Principles on HMI” (Known as the ESoP) and a subsequent meeting with Member States on September 30 2008.
The WG-HMI will consider if there is a need to update the ESoP as a result of recent experiences with this document, technological development, particularly in the areas of nomadic devices and in warning systems. It is envisaged that the Working Group will report towards the end of 2009 with any identified update of the ESoP being a subsequent task for a small expert group.
The WG-HMI is a European Group, open to all active participants of the eSafety Forum. All concerned stakeholders representing Public Authorities, Road Operators and Road Users as well as Automotive and ICT Industry stakeholders interested in human interfaces and safety are especially invited to join.
The WG-HMI is co-chaired by representatives from TRL (the UK Transport Research Laboratory) and BASt (the German Federal Highway Research Institute). You can find more information and the draft Terms of Reference (soon available) at the Working Group webpage.
