    Increasing number of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), communication devices and entertainment services are introduced in modern vehicles. This raise need of adaptive human machine interface (HMI) to keep the driver’s workload at a reasonable level. The study presented here extends driver’s workload detection beyond previous work. The analysing tool developed in the AIDE-EU-FP6-IP project will be applied to acquire data on driver workload while driving and using aftermarket devices. VTT is currently coordinating the TeleFOT-EU-FP7 project focusing on large scale Field Operational Tests (FOT) investigating the infl uence of aftermarket and nomadic devices on driving. The project will use a low cost camera vision system to automatically analyse the driver’s workload.
