B. Field Operational Tests (FOT)

Database management systems, Nomadic devices, Data collection and aggregation, Roadside data management centers, Applications (e.g. intelligent speed adaptation, lane departure warning assist, ACC) and results

C. Human Machine Interaction (HMI)

Audible devices, Actuators and haptic devices, In-vehicle integrated systems, Accessibility and Disability, Adaptive interfaces, Design/evaluation methods, HMI education, User interface applications

D. Green driving & environmental friendly transport systems
