The establishment of areas for safe automated driving in mixed-traffic settings is one major barrier in the development and adoption of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs). This work investigates safety in the interactions between AVs, human-driven vehicles, and vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians in a simulated urban environment in the...

In a future where most of our transit system consists of autonomous vehicle, the question is raised how we as humans interact and communicate with them, and they with us. This project explores these interactions in the current time to uncover how humans interact and negotiate in traffic. More specifically how pedestrians do so. From the analysis...

Shared autonomous vehicles (SAV) is coming up as an effective and sustainable first and last mile mobility solution that can integrate itself well into the existing transport network. Currently it is mandatory to have an on-board steward in the SAV. The technology has been maturing to have completely autonomous vehicles without the need of...

Flying insects are capable of vision-based navigation in cluttered environments, reliably avoiding obstacles through fast and agile maneuvers, while being very efficient in the processing of visual stimuli. Meanwhile, autonomous micro air vehicles still lag far behind their biological counterparts, displaying inferior performance at a much...

The DelFly Nimble is a type of tailless flapping-wing micro air vehicles (FWMAVs) that has received an increasing amount of attention. FWMAVs show efficient and agile flight possibilities at small scale. The aerodynamics and dynamics of these flapping vehicles are challenging and not fully understood. In this work, a strategy to implement a 3D...

Context & Problem Humans are entering the age of the 4th industrial revolution: improving factories by applying smart sensors, artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies, such as AGVs: Autonomous Ground Vehicles. these are fully automated driverless vehicles that can transport goods and machinery. The newest generation AGVs...

The advent of a society in which autonomous technology coexists with humans is an inevitability. The project focuses on one such autonomous technology in the form of autonomous vehicles or self driving cars. The benefits of such automation is well documented in academia and is supported by the investment by some of the biggest automobile and...

The way an autonomous delivery vehicle behaves during an encounter with a pedestrian evokes an experience comprised of many short-term emotions, influences which behaviour that person will use in reaction to the robot. In many cases, for both the negative and positive experiences, behaviour emerges that results in time-consuming encounters. This...

Road intersections have a large impact on road accidents and travel delay. Applying infrastructure, such as stop signs and traffic lights, are supposed to prevent collisions on the intersection. However, such methods contribute to the travel delay, while accidents still occur due to human errors. Considering the rise of automation within...

Perspective-taking is the ability to see a situation based on the viewpoint of others. In autonomous vehicle-pedestrian (AV-P) interaction, the perspective taken by the pedestrian could be affected by the design of an external Human-Machine Interface (eHMI). However, currently, there is little knowledge about the effect of message perspective on...

The automobile industry has been continuously working on bringing automation in motor vehicles for the betterment of human life. Advancement in technology has helped companies manufacture cars that can drive and navigate on their own called Autonomous vehicles (AVs). There are numerous effects of AVs on society. The AVs are forecast to bring...

To promote automation in vehicles, autonomous driving should feel comfortable. To achieve low discomfort, a comfort oriented nonlinear model predictive controller is created. We know humans are sensitive for discomfort in certain frequencies in acceleration. By penalizing the frequencies for discomfort a higher comfort performance can be...

Out of all the countries in the world, the Netherlands has the most ‘autonomous vehicle’-ready road network (KPMG, 2019). It is the result of years of investing in state-of-the-art technologies and putting in place the needed policies, and it seems to pay off: our country is likely to be amongst the early adapters as soon as these vehicles enter...

An autonomous guided vehicle can be used for the delivery of goods. To deliver these goods to your home, the mobile robot will be driving in pedestrian rich environments. In these environments the robot will need to socially navigate itself in a way which is both pleasant for the pedestrians and progressive for the robot. During its drive, the...

<b>Aim:</b> In this study, we aimed to investigate pedestrians’ trust, crossing behaviour, and misuse of an automated vehicle (AV) equipped with an external human-machine interface (eHMI). We hypothesized that participants’ trust would drop to a low level when the eHMI fails (i.e., the eHMI turns on, but the vehicle does not brake), followed by...

Autonomous vehicles have the potential to introduce numerous changes, opportunities, and innovations in mobility services, environment, data, value networks, and economy, among others. These automated vehicles are expected to impulse a disruptive change in society, especially within transport technology economics, travel behavior, and network...

Allowing level 4 Automated Vehicles to drive on highways could significantly impact the traffic efficiency and safety. Although it might probably take a while before AVs are on the road, NRAs (National Road Authorities) are already investigating how to adapt their current infrastructure to make it ready for AVs – while optimizing both traffic...

Last decades the autonomous driving research field has shown exponential growth. The social benefits, which include increased safety, mobility and productivity, are the main factor that drive this growth. One of the most difficult problems that vehicle engineers must solve to develop autonomous vehicles is the motion planning problem. They must...

This paper considers the multi-vehicle automated driving coordination problem. We develop a distributed, hybrid decision-making framework for safe and efficient autonomous driving of selfish vehicles on multi-lane highways, where each dynamics is modeled as a mixed-logical–dynamical system. We formalize the coordination problem as a generalized...

Allowing Level 4 Automated Vehicles (AVs) to drive on highways could potentially have an impact on the road network performance. Although it might probably take a while before AVs are on the road, National Road Authorities (NRAs) are already concerned about understanding what changes would be required on their current infrastructure to make it...
