Abstract

The content of a vehicle consists mainly of mechanical and electronic components. However software becomes an increasingly important part of future vehicles. The software side of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) is part of the international road safety strategy to improve the mobility, comfort and safety of road users. Road crashes cost Australia $15 billion a year and 95% of these crashes are attributed to driver error. ITS and driver assistance systems could reduce driver error by augmenting the awareness of relevant safety-critical contextual information. Such a context-aware system is difficult to program due to the incompletness and complexity of the information from the environment. This paper outlines research issues that need to be addressed to deploy sustainable context-aware software for vehicles. A solution to improve the productivity of context-aware systems by using a new Context Oriented Programming (COP) paradigms is suggested. COP is then used to build a driver assistance system that takes into account driver’s cognitive workload.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
