The AAA are requesting proposals “To Conduct a Research Project to Develop a Method to Evaluate the Distractibility of Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) in Modern Vehicles”

This research project aims to develop a method to evaluate the distractibility of human machine interfaces (HMI) in modern and future vehicles in the Australian market under Australian conditions.

The project will be undertaken in two phases – a feasibility phase and major project phase. This feasibility study phase will propose a research plan/study design to undertake the major research project and assess the viability and effectiveness of said plans/designs. The outcomes of the feasibility study will be used by the AAA and its Board to ensure confidence in the research plan, methodologies, timings, and budget for the major project.

The AAA is inviting proposals from researchers with extensive experience in this field. Project proposals are to be received by the AAA at the email address: and must be received by 5pm (AEST) 26th July 2021.

The AAA will be hosting an information session for interested parties on the 8th of July at 2:00PM (AEST) via video conference. The information session will focus on working with the AAA, the AAA’s expectations, contracting, reporting requirements, and will provide an opportunity for interested parties to clarify any aspect of this request for proposal.
