Project Description
Briefly, the goal of the project is:

1.Corraborative data collection of in-car driving behavior signals under operation of in-car spoken dialogue systems at Japan, US and Europe (Turkey).
2.Proposing a model of driving behavior and evaluate it through driver identification.
3.Draft document for the international standard ISO TC22 related to the interaction between in-car speech communication and driving.

Human cognition, decision and action processes while driving are studied in terms of human behavioral signal processing. Having international achievements in collecting a large in-car speech corpus, the research team makes an endeavor on collecting in-car human behavioral signals, across cultures and social systems. Theoretical developments will be evaluated using those human related signals under the real world. In order to promote the novel research area, research fundamentals, i.e., corpora, evaluation frameworks and algorithm standards, are also developed. Assisting and warning drivers and creating a new industrial field by fusing motor-car and amusement industries are one of the short term and long term goals of the project.
