In the last decade, the design of smart tools applied to the automotive sector is becoming more and more required to support driving tasks and to increase drivers' safety. In this paper, a system for the joint analysis of the on board/off board vehicle context is proposed to derive considerations on the driver's behavior and to detect possible dangerous situations. In particular, a cognitive model is exploited to provide a representation of interactions among the driver, the vehicle and the surrounding environment.
