Adaptive User Interfaces:
From Vehicle Components to Transport Networks


Due to increased connectivity and advanced autonomous technologies, driver-vehicle relationships are in the midst of a paradigm shift. Already, many traditionally human motor tasks are completed by the vehicle and there is an increasing transfer of cognitive tasks away from the driver. These enabling technologies facilitate safer and more efficient transport by cooperating with, understanding, and adapting to users, situations and contexts. However, from a vehicle design perspective, new challenges emerge. Specifically, designing adaptive interfaces to supported shared decision making, situational awareness, and efficiency (vehicle and fleet) need to be considered. This presentation includes a retrospective of recent and ongoing projects conducted by Scania’s Driver-Vehicle Interaction group that address the issue of human-technology collaboration with adaptive interfaces.


Dr. Stas Krupenia was awarded his Ph.D. in Cognitive Engineering from The University of Queensland in 2007. From 2007 to 2009, Stas completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Israel Institute of Technology, contributing to the European Project, SKILLS: Multimodal Interfaces for the Capturing and Transfer of Skill. From 2009 to 2012, Stas was employed as a Cognitive Engineer for Thales Research and Technology. At Thales, Stas contributed to a range of projects including primarily the European Defence Agency funded ‚Smart Information for Mission Success‘. Currently Stas is an Expert Cognitive Engineer at Scania where he contributes to the design of future and potential Scania products. He also leads the Simulation and Evaluation Team.
