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 ...

With automated vehicles (AVs), reversible lanes could be a sustainable transportation solution once there is vehicle-to-infrastructure connectivity informingAVs about the lane configuration changes. This paper introduced the reversible lane network design problem (RL-NDP), formulated in mixed-integer non-linear mathematical programming-both...

The introduction of automated vehicles (AVs)is a virtual certainty. Much less certain is the timing of their introduction and how rapid the transition to full automation will be. Various governments are already working to facilitate this shift by, for example, amending and elaborating regulations to support the introduction of AVs, or...

In this paper, we study the dial-a-ride problem of ride-sharing automated taxis (ATs) in an urban road network, considering the traffic congestion caused by the ATs. This shared automated mobility system is expected to provide a seamless door-to-door service for urban travellers, much like what the existing transportation network companies ...

This paper aims to explore the performance of the autonomous mobility-on-demand system (AMoD) with the coordinated formation of vehicle platooning. In this study, an agent-based model (ABM) is developed to explicitly simulate the operations of platooning formation and interactions between shared automated vehicles (SAVs) and real-time travel...

What will cyclists do in future conflict situations with automated cars at intersections when the cyclist has the right of way? In order to explore this, short high-quality animation videos of conflicts between a car and a cyclist at five different intersections were developed. These videos were ‘shot’ from the perspective of the cyclist and...

Lower levels of automation are designed to work in specific conditions referred to as the Operational Design Domain (ODD). Beyond these conditions, the human driver is expected to take control. A mismatch between a driver's understanding and expectations of the automated vehicle capabilities and its actual capabilities as prescribed in the...

This paper presents a comparative analysis of demand-responsive and fixed-schedule, fixed route operations for a simplified station-based feeder to mass transit scenario. Traffic dynamics, demand-responsive fleet coordination, and the behaviour of individual transit users are represented using a public transit simulation framework. Each...

The objective of this research is to explore the relation between personal characteristics of pedestrians and their crossing behaviour in front of an automated vehicle (AV). For this purpose, a simulation experiment was developed using Agent-Based Modelling (ABM) techniques. Sixty participants were asked to cross the road in a virtual...

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...

Improving the quality of urban spaces has always been the central concern for the urban designers. Street as the typical type of public spaces comprises more than 80% of public space in cities, but they often fail to provide a space where people can safely walk, bicycle and socialize, this mainly because cars dramatically occupies most street...

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...

In Europe there is a growing concern about the development of future urban form, especially deconcentrating of urban land use in the form of urban sprawl. Urban sprawl is synonymous with unplanned incremental urban development, characterized by a low density mix of land uses on the urban fringe. On 7th Environment Action Programme to 2020 ...

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...

Vehicles are increasingly equipped with sensors that measure the state of the vehicle and surrounding road users. Although most of these sensor data currently remain local to the vehicle, the data could be shared with the aim to improve road safety. We postulate that there is a range of scenarios regarding data sharing, with two extremes: In...
