Brief Bio

Dr. Juan Manuel Belda Lois is a senior researcher of Instituto de Biomecánica de Valencia. He has been working in the development of assistive products since 1997. He has participated in several European Projects from 5th Framework Program to Horizon2020. Coordinating the project ABC (Advanced BNCI Communication) and participating in other projects related with the application of Physiological Computing Systems as asssistive products. He has been the lead researcher on Interface Design at IBV between 2014 and 2016, and nowadays is the leader of application of physiological signals of the center.


While the deployment of connected automated vehicle (CAV) turns into reality, its acceptance has been called into question. Public acceptance is a multi-faceted construct, tightly related to emotional processes and trust in a new technology, beyond the accomplishment of functional performance.

In order to address this issue, one of the objectives of the project H2020 SUaaVE (Supporting acceptance of automated VEhicle), under grant agreement No 814999, is the conceptualisation of the fundamental architecture to humanise the behaviour of the vehicle. In particular, this concept will be aimed to understand passengers’ state based on their physiological response and, from this information, to manage corrective actions in vehicle for enhancing trip experience.
