Sweden’s Autoliv Inc. is launching a two-year research program with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s AgeLab to develop a prototype semi-autonomous vehicle system with “human-centered” artificial intelligence.

The program will use so-called deep learning computer algorithms to better assess and help improve a driver’s readiness to take control of a vehicle that is being operated autonomously. This includes sensing driver gaze, emotion, cognitive load, drowsiness, hand position and posture.

Autoliv expects to apply the results of the research to software being developed by its Zenuity joint venture with Volvo Car Corp. Launched in April, Zenuity aims to launch its first advanced-driver-assist systems by 2019.
