During this workshop Railway Undertakings will give their return of experience with Driving Advisory Systems (DAS). The workshop will include a debate on the possible conflict between a speed advice coming from a DAS that is conflicting with the speed permitted via lateral signalling.
Also the interface with the driver will be handled. Can a DAS be an extra stand-alone device? How should the advice be given?

Keywords : DAS, Driving Advisory Systems, Eco-Driving, Driving Style, Optimal Speed, Coasting, Cruising, Human Machine Interface.
