Alberto Morando

Early Stage Researcher 9, Chalmers University of Technology

He joined the Vehicle and Traffic Safety Centre (SAFER) of the Department of Applied Mechanics at Chalmers in July 2014.
He is a Marie Curie Fellow (Early Stage Researcher) in the HF Auto ITN project.
He obtained the Master Degree in Mechatronics Engineering at University of Trento (Italy) in 2014, and the Bachelor Degree in Mechanical Engineering at University of Padova (Italy) in 2011.

He is currently developing a monitoring system able to estimate whether a driver is at risk for a collision under high automation, especially while driving in complex situations.

Project Interests

His project is part of the Work Package (WP) “DRIVER STATE MONITORING”. This WP focuses on the driver perception and behaviour during automated driving.
His research includes the development of new methods for glance analysis, extraction of behavioural parameters and driver modelling.
The aim is to enhance a safety-oriented interaction between road users.
The final outcome of his study will be a driver monitoring system which can infer distraction and lack of situation awareness from eye-tracking and other information.
Theoretical and empirical researches will be conducted, analysing naturalistic, simulator and field data.
