||In this talk, I will give a presentation on the MODAS-project, specifically the challenges we have experienced from a Human Factors perspective. MODAS is a co-operation between Scania CV AB, Swedish Interactive Institute (Piteň), Luleň Technical University and Uppsala University. The purpose of the project is to develop a design method for creating a multimodal driver environment for future trucks which incorporate a range of advanced automation, to implement this design method, and to develop a set of testing tools to evaluate the success of the driver environment. In contrast to similar projects like HAVEit, Interactive, AuotoNet, AdaptiVe, HF Auto and Companion, MODAS is a low-budget project based on a holistic design philosophy. The meaning of this and the challenges we have encountered will be presented and discussed in the seminar.
