Role in the project
At the Technical University of Munich the Chair of Ergonomics (Department of Mechanical Engineering) and the Cyber-Physical Systems Group (Department of Informatics) will participate in interACT. The Chair of Ergonomics aims to develop and evaluate psychological models of human interaction, which will detail how road users interact in current traffic situations. The Cyber-Physical Systems Group focuses on safety aspects in case of failure in interaction between the traffic participants.
