Project Duration: 1. January 2009 - 31. December 2009
The Carmina project at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) was aimed to set the fundament of a new generation of context-sensitive multimodal interfaces for automotive applications, which should support the following interaction types: The interaction of driver and other passengers with the the vehicle and mobile web services, the interaction between passengers i.e. the driver, co-driver and the passenger at the rear seats (multi party interaction), and the interaction of passengers and the environment. Our work covered:
- Integrating and controlling the CAN-Bus system of a Mercedes R-Class.
- Integrating a multimodal dialog system for controlling the vehicle functions (air-conditioning system, seat heatings, side windows, etc.).
- Multi-user system: All passengers should be able to use the system simultaneously (According to this, commands such as “open my window” could be interpreted and executed in the right way).
- Integrating an 3D driving simulator.
- Automated communication with other vehicles.
- Integrating an OWL ontology.
- Providing information about the environment. Questions like “What is that building at the right hand side?” was interpreted and answered correctly.
