Content

The main focus of this seminar is to study the emotional awareness in the era of autonomous driving. Emotional awareness covers a wide range of domains from in-cabin comfort and well-being of the occupants to the safety of the passengers and pedestrians. Students will study each one of the aspects which has impact on increasing and maintaining the awareness in detail with covering the state-of-the-art publications during the recent years and together will demonstrate the importance along with the achievements in both science and industry.


Workflow

In our first session on 18.10.2019 students will form their group (of two members) and we will discuss the available topics. Each group will get assigned to one topic according to their own preference. Groups will collect the necessary materials (state of the art scientific works e.g. scientific publications) within the context of their topic and will perform their research based on the collected resources. Each group will be given 40 minutes on their specified date (are listed in below) to represent the findings, and address the research questions of their own topic. Respectively, they will write and submit a scientific paper (IEEE template) with minimum 6 pages, depicting their findings and the main contribution of their work during seminar.
