Great interest in AI Enhanced Mobility workshop in focus group for Road Safety – 11 concrete ideas on the table!

måndag, januari 23, 2023

With 17 people physically on site at Lindholmen and 9 on link, 25 organizations from business, academia and the public sector gathered in last week’s workshop with the goal of finding new exciting collaborations in AI and road safety. Magnus Granström and Malin Levin from SAFER/Chalmers opened the workshop by introducing ongoing initiatives and opportunities to apply for funding for project ideas.

AI Enhanced Mobility workshop

When it was time for the participants to take the word, as many as 11 ideas were on the table ready to be presented to the network.

First out was Martin Torstensson & Jonas Andersson from RISE presenting the MIDAS project, which revolves around anonymization of data at the camera source, while keeping important information for training of AI. Also, an application will be announced for a continuation project for those interested.

Yuru Tarakanov from Viscando presented a project idea for detecting traffic safety on relevant features using AI, for understanding and improvement of safety for active mobility. Examples: usage of helmet, sight detection, e-scooter detection.

Carlos Trischler Castillo from Jönköping municipality wants to do analyzes of pedestrian flow in street crossings, passages and at zebra crossings where cycling and walking are distinguished in the categories of children and adults.

Mattis Gottlow from NEVS ask how to detect when out-of-ODD (or on the border) for a fully autonomous vehicle - What are the requirements, hardware, data structure and models needed for a CAV to reliably detect when it is reaching the border of an ODD?

Else-Marie Malmeken from Malmeken would like to compare use cases of autonomous vehicles in different ODDS. The prestudy Trustworthy-AI was accomplished during 2020. Now they want to invite other partners in a next phase.

Anders Dewoon from Consenz would like to improve and personalize human response to visual and audial input in a retrofitted Head-up Display. “We would like to act as a practical test bed for AI use cases in relation to HMI in non-automised vehicles. If behavioural psychology and design principles could be applied, even better”.

Then Paul Hemeren from the University of Skövde suggests looking more into trustworthy AI and the user experience when developing AI solutions.  “We are interested in developing the relationship between trust in AI-system predictions and trust for explainable AI in relation to driver understanding of AI-system information”.

Finally, Johan Amoruso Wennergren from Volvo Cars asks for collaboration about AI powered awareness for increased traffic safety, primarily within the ongoing project AI AWARE Scale Up, with a focus on accident intensity estimation based on real world streaming data.

The workshop was finalized with two sessions where the participants could gather in groups to form partnership around the proposed project ideas.

The pitch opportunity to apply for funding for the final project proposal ideas is in March and the groups now have some time to develop and concretize the ideas further.

We entered the weekend energized and emphasized with AI in mind.
