Abstract

Road accidents are a serious problem worldwide. The European research project EUCLIDE aims to improve road safety by developing an anti-collision warning system specially designed to help the driver in poor visibility conditions. The methodological approach chosen for this purpose is a user-based design. This paper describes the first phases of the design process: analysis of the driver's needs and definition of system characteristics, based on a literature review and the use of a cognitive model. These steps will form the design basis of the EUCLIDE system and its interface during the next part of the project.
