Acknowledgements I will express my deepest gratitude to Prof. José Millán and Dr. Ricardo Chavarriaga. It has been more than a great pleasure to work and grow as a researcher under their guidance. Learning from them is the biggest treasure I have possessed ever, which are more than the knowledges in research, the ways of being a scientist, also a model of character to be built in my life. Without their grace, I could not have reached this stage. A great thank goes to the Nissan team, particularly Lucian Gheorghe, made the Nissan project possible, also provides technical supports and ideas in car simulator and real car studies. Thanks to Michaël Themans (EPFL transportation center) and Jonathan Martin (Cantonal road service) for their supports in the real car study. I am grateful to the members of my defense committee, Prof. Dominique Pioletti, Prof. Dimitri Van De Ville, Prof. Seung-Whan Lee, and Prof. Fabio Bailoni for taking their time to read and provide valuable comments on the thesis. I must thank the members of CNBI, for their helps in research, and their presence in my life. I especially want to thank Dr. Eileen Lew, who helped me a lot from the beginning till even after her leaving, in both technical aspects and life in Lausanne. Big thank to Zahra Khalili, who is always patient and cooperative. It is also pleasure to collaborate with Dr. Inaki, Dr. Luca (Tonin), Dr. Marija and Dr. Andrea. Thanks to the early generation, Dr. Simis, Dr. Nicolas, Dr. Robert, Dr. Ganga, Dr. Tom, for providing advices in research and programming, to the median generation, Dr. Hesam, Sareh, Pierluca, Dr. Mohit, Dr. Maria Laura, Alberto and Marco, for their helps in experiments and proofreading, and also the young PhDs, Michael, Stephanie, Luca (Randazzo), Christoph and Tiffany for bringing active atmosphere to the lab. My sincere thank to all the subjects, mainly PhD and master students, for spending their time to participate my experiments in the past few years. The studies were validated and becoming solid because of your presence and highly quality brain signals. I thank my friends in Switzerland, Xiaoshen, Yuan, Chongqi, Su, Xiuzhen, and Yun, for the good time shared together, also friends, Yi, Zhaoyin, Yuanfan, Tao, Pao, Niu, Zisa and Bao, for the supports and encouragements during my hard times.
