INNOVATIVE SYSTEM OF INTERACTION BETWEEN THE DRIVER AND VEHICLE. THE FANCI PROJECT WITHIN EUROPEAN COMMISSION’S HORIZON2020 FRAMEWORK PROGRAM
The system described in this article has been developed within the consortium of project FANCI (Face and body Analysis Natural Computer Interaction) project. One of the main scope of the project is to give a better support to the driver’s capabilities using some of the most advanced technologies in the field of intelligent user sensing methods, including eye tracking, face analysis, emotion recognition, intention & authentication, voice tone analysis, hand gesture recognition and head gesture & pose analysis. All these technologies will be integrated in a unique platform which is always-on, real time, low consumption and low cost. The information collected by this platform will be used as input of smart user intention or distraction estimation and system reaction methods, supplying visual (HUD, etc.), voice and haptic feedback as well as autonomous system actions.
