The DRAMA project studies how to automatically identify driver’s and passengers’ activities in a vehicle in a system, designed to be integrated in a vehicle. Such a system may be used for enhanced interaction between persons in a vehicle and the vehicle itself, for improved safety and comfort for the persons inside the vehicle.
The aim of the DRAMA project is to enable enhanced interaction between a vehicle and persons inside the vehicle by providing information about body posture, facial expression and activity for the persons in the vehicle.
With more information about its driver and passengers, a vehicle can adapt its behaviour and character with to increase safety and comfort.
A purpose of the project is to generate and to spread knowledge that may be used in future solutions and products.
The goal is to make a prototype for use in vehicles capable of automatically identifying persons’ body postures, facial expressions and activities in real time.
The project will produce tools, methods and algorithms needed for real-time, automatic identification of body postures, facial expressions and activities from images of persons from multiple cameras in a vehicle. Also, for the implementation, the limited computational resources available in a vehicle will have to be considered.
The DRAMA project will implement a data acquisition system for multiple cameras mounted in the cabin of a vehicle. This system will also perform calculations of the algorithms produced in the project. These algorithms will, to a high degree, be based on machine learning.
The DRAMA project will:
