SAFERIDER HMI strategies for motorcycles' ARAS and OBIS
For more than one decade the European Commission has been focusing on the enhancement of road safety by funding research on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Intelligent Vehicle Information Systems (IVIS) in the field of automotive. However, the application of such technologies for motorcycles is currently lacking behind. While in the automotive sector extended knowledge has been generated also on the Human-Machine Interface (HMI) for ADAS and IVIS this does by far not apply for the motorcycle sector. Therefore five Advanced Riding Assistance Systems (ARAS) and four On-Bike Information Systems (OBIS) are developed in the SAFERIDER project. Additionally high effort is dedicated to the design of an innovative HMI for these ARAS and OBIS, based on new haptic, visual and acoustic HMI elements that are integrated into an iteratively tested HMI concept. The paper focuses on the assignment of HMI elements to the specific ARAS and OBIS and the design of intuitive haptic warnings. Especially the acceptance and compliance toward safety warnings is considered in the presented HMI strategies that are developed within the project. After iterative testing the approach will lead to a highly acceptable and effective HMI concept for motorcycle riders.
