Naturalistic Driving Symposium

CardioID was in attendance at the 6th International Symposium on Naturalistic Driving, which took place on June 8-9 in The Hague, Netherlands. The event, organized by the SWOV (the Dutch Institute for Road Safety Research) and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, brought together key players in the naturalistic driving research community.

Topics such as driver distraction, detection of phone use, crash risk analysis, and fatigue prediction were thoroughly discussed. Additional points of debate included driver and pedestrian behavior, and cycling and motorcycling. Most prominently, there were several presentations by the UDrive EU project, providing enlightening insights into many of these topics.

CardioID took the opportunity to present CardioWheel to this community, highlighting the relevance of physiological monitoring while on the road. Specifically, we shared some of the results of our pilot study at a bus transportation company, in collaboration with FEUP. We would like to thank the organizing and scientific committee for such a welcoming environment. We did our best to contribute to the discussion in improving safety and security while on the road.
