Gürses, Sergin (author)
Human Machine Interface (HMI) is a design concept that improves the interaction between the driver and the automated vehicle, which leads to greater safety and comfort for the driver and greater safety for the road user. Therefore, many papers and patents are published every year. Many papers use different methodologies and materials due to some...

Highly automated vehicles may lead to vehicle occupants getting distracted from driving-related tasks, so it may be necessary to introduce at new modalities to achieve effective pedestrian-vehicle communication. This research proposes using the lateral deviation of the automated vehicle within its lane as a method to communicate if it is going...

With the arrival of Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) concepts for traffic control systems emerge that let CAVs weave over the crossing area of an intersection. However, in the current literature, the safety of these vehicles is generally an assumption rather than a certainty. Moreover, the time period where CAVs and Human-Driven Vehicles ...

Communication between pedestrians and drivers partially relies on nonverbal communication methods such as eye-contact and gestures. With the transition from manually driven vehicles to automated vehicles (AVs), pedestrians could lose the ability to communicate their intention to the driver. This study investigated the use of hand gestures as a...

The operation of automated vehicles in shared areas requires attention with respect to the interaction between AVs and vulnerable road users, including cyclists. Currently, the programmed interaction behavior of AVs is based on the knowledge of the interaction between conventional vehicles and cyclists. However, cyclists may react differently to...

There is a pressing need for road authorities to take a proactive role in the deployment of automated vehicles on the existing road network. This requires a comprehensive understanding of the road infrastructure requirements that would lead to safe operation of automated vehicles. In this context, a field test with Lane Departure Warning and...

Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) technologies like Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) are becoming the normality for many users, and many major car manufacturers are introducing SAE level 2 and 3 automation systems into the market. The main advantage of Automated Vehicles (AV) will be the significant decrease in road accidents and...

Amsterdam Centrum has been suffering from the spatial competition between overcrowded pedestrian visitors and busy vehicular flows. Application of automated vehicles is a historic opportunity to reclaim the streets for people and change the predicament of the downtown. The thesis focuses on the relationship between walkability and traffic...

de Vries, Anouk (author)
With the introduction of Automated Vehicles (AVs), new potential traffic situations could emerge on the roads. Although several studies on AVs have been conducted, most of these studies focus on the AV technology or on the driver, while there is less emphasis on how these AVs could interact and communicate with other road users. The interactions...

The development of automated vehicles offers advantages for the transportation systems of the future. As a result, new and unknown challenges within the field of transportation arise. Moreover, there are uncertainties within the behavioural responses of travellers and amongst other things, the changes in the modal split within the transportation...

The transition towards fully Automated Vehicles (AV) can lead to inefficient use of the available infrastructure in the Netherlands, while space is already scarce. - Knowledge from AV impact studies can help the government in the management of available infrastructure. Therefore, in this research a systematic literature review was carried out in...

Although fully-automated vehicles (FAVs) are not yet allowed on public roads and are barely present in people’s daily lives, according to experts their wide implementation will happen within the next few decades. The technology is expected to bring major benefits in terms of safety, traffic flow efficiency and environmental impact. Furthermore,...

In this graduation thesis the feasibility of a camera as sensor for nautical operations is investigated. In<br/>aerospace and automotive industries autonomous vehicles are already widely tested and used. However<br/>the marine industry has fallen behind in this development. Therefore this research is focussing on<br/>automation in the maritime...

The value of travel time saving(VOTTS) is very important in cost benefit analysis(CBA) as it is used to calculate the monetary gain in case of an improvement in transport that leads to reduction in travel time. Although it is easy to directly calculate monetary gains due to a speed improvement, monetary gains due to transport service improvement...

The technology of automated driving systems that assist the human driver are in ongoing development and could potentially improve traffic safety and efficiency. At this moment, a lot of research into automated vehicles is carried out. The City of Amsterdam wants to know what impact AVs can have on traffic safety in their city. Most studies focus...

Automated Vehicles (AV) will be introduced on public roads in the near future. This would result in automated vehicles sharing the urban space with other road users including drivers of traditional vehicles and vulnerable road users. Pedestrians might be unable to distinguish the vehicle type (traditional or automated) they are interacting with...

Current research on automated vehicles focuses mainly on the drivers of automated vehicles, on its potential to improve the efficiency of traffic operations, safety, congestion and societal benefits, public’s acceptance of automated vehicles as a transport system and the willingness to buy automated vehicles. Nevertheless, there is a research...

Automated vehicles (AVs) have been receiving much attention all over the world, where the first fully AVs are already operating on the road network. AVs could not only have a tremendous impact on the urban environment but also on human travel behaviour. The focus of this study is to gain insight into the effects of private highly AVs on drivers’...

With the aim of investigating the perception of elderly on two types of automated vehicle (owned and shared) this thesis research questioned 123 elderly respondents on their intention of using AV in the (near) future and what the main reasons for (not) using these technologies are. By using behavioral modeling and a modified UTAUT model the main...
