Lane change decision-making is an important challenge for automated vehicles, urging the need for high performance algorithms that are able to handle complex traffic situations. Deep reinforcement learning (DRL), a machine learning method based on artificial neural networks, has recently become a popular choice for modelling the lane change...

Interacting with cyclists is a difficult challenge for Automated Vehicles (AVs). It is important that the introduction of AVs does not lead to a decrease in cyclist safety. This study presents a new methodology that is developed to assess road safety between AVs and cyclists. Surrogate Measures of Safety are identified specifically for the...

Automated vehicles (AVs) are on the horizon, and they are expected to deliver traffic safety and efficiency benefits to transportation systems. There are different automation levels for AVs based on the functionalities of the automation systems and their operating design domain (i.e., on which conditions these functionalities can be realized)....

Automated driving research over the past decades has mostly focused on highway environments. Recent technological developments have drawn researchers and manufacturers to look ahead at introducing automated driving in cities. The current position paper examines this challenge from the viewpoint of scientific experts. Sixteen Human Factors...

Most of cyclists’ fatalities originate from collisions with motorized vehicles. It is expected that automated vehicles (AV) will be safer than human-driven vehicles, but this depends on the nature of interactions between non-automated road users, among them cyclists. Little research on the interactions between cyclists and AVs exists. This...

With the anticipated introduction of self-driving vehicles, new challenges arise for urban transport- and planning authorities. This study contributes to the efforts of formulating the potential opportunities and threats stemming from the introduction of larger fleets of self-driving vehicles to our cities, and what action could be taken by...

In 1886, humanity started a great effort to move away from horseback and build a carriage over which they have full control. A century-and-a-half later, we have succeeded to the degree that we are looking for a way to relax in our automobiles. The MEDIATOR project tackles the transitional period between conventional automobiles and fully...

Automated vehicles (AV) are expected to change our future way of transportation and bring many positive effects, such as better road/vehicle safety, reduced environmental costs but also increased on-board productivity. The commonly adopted approach to capture the effect of increased on-board productivity is to reduce the ‘penalty’ associated...

Advancements in technology are bringing Automated vehicles (AVs) closer to reality and it is not so far in future when these vehicles will have a significant penetration rate in our existing transport network. However, in the early phases of automation, penetration rate of these vehicles will be very low. This would lead to a mixed traffic...

The emergence of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) could have a significant impact on traffic efficiency and safety. The effects of CAVs in regular highway traffic are relatively well represented in scientific research. How these effects change in exceptional situations, such as work zones, and how the infrastructure can influence these...

Various visual external human-machine interfaces (eHMIs) have been proposed that communicate the intent of automated vehicles (AVs) to vulnerable road users. However, there is no consensus on which eHMI concept is most suitable for intent communication. In nature, animals have evolved the ability to communicate intent via visual signals....

Automated vehicles with conditional driving automation (SAE level 3 (SAE, 2018)) will request the human driver to intervene when reaching its system boundaries by issuing a take-over request (TOR). This study is investigating whether a speech-based auditory take-over request is influencing the time it takes from automated to manual driving,...

Fully automated vehicles have the potential to increase road safety and improve traffic flow by taking the human element out of the driving loop. They can also provide mobility to people who are unable to operate a conventional vehicle. Safe automated vehicles must be able to respond in emergency situations or drive on slippery roads in bad...

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 ...

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...

With shared mobility services becoming increasingly popular and vehicle automation technology advancing fast, there is an increasing interest in analysing the impacts of large-scale deployment of shared automated vehicles. In this study, a large fleet of shared automated vehicles providing private rides to passengers is introduced to an agent...

This note revises the theoretical insights concerning the Value of Travel Time for automated vehicles as derived in a recent paper in this journal (Correia et al., 2019). That paper concluded that Value of Travel Time in an automated vehicle should be lower than in a conventional vehicle by salary rate, if the traveller works during the trip,...

The introduction of automated vehicles means that some or all operational control over these vehicles is diverted away from a human driver to a technological system. The concept of Meaningful Human Control (MHC) was derived to address control issues over automated systems, allowing a system to explicitly consider human intentions and reasons....
