This research delves into the transformative potential of self-driving vehicles by investigating their impact on passengers’ happiness. As autonomous transportation technology rapidly evolves, understanding the user experience within these vehicles becomes essential. To investigate the happiness of the self-driving vehicles’ passengers, which is...

Testing with simulation environments helps to identify critical failing scenarios for self-driving cars (SDCs). Simulation-based tests are safer than in-field operational tests and allow detecting software defects before deployment. However, these tests are very expensive and are too many to be run frequently within limited time constraints...

Many technological systems these days interact with their environment with increasingly little human intervention. This situation comes with higher stakes and consequences that society needs to manage. No longer are we dealing with 404 pages: AI systems today may cause serious harm. To address this, we wish to exert a kind of control over these...

Cyber-physical systems are complex systems constructed from different independent parts. A self-driving car is an example of a cyber-physical system where independent parts have to come together in order to result in a car that is able to drive by itself. The main challenge is finding failures within the interactions between the independent...

In this paper, we explore the creation of control algorithms for swarms of robots playing the role of either predator or prey in an environment filled with static obstacles. The paper devel- ops on a famous flock simulation model proposed by Craig Reynolds called boids. The paper analyzes a zero-sum game situation, in which one swarm of robots,...

The paper has two goals. The first is presenting the main results of the recent report Ethics of Connected and Automated Vehicles: recommendations on road safety, privacy, fairness, explainability and responsibility written by the Horizon 2020 European Commission Expert Group to advise on specific ethical issues raised by driverless mobility,...

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...

This paper proposes that autonomous vehicles should be designed to reduce light pollution. In support of this specific proposal, a moral assessment of autonomous vehicles more comprehensive than the dilemmatic life-and-death questions of trolley problem-style situations is presented. The paper therefore consists of two interre-lated arguments....

In this paper, in line with the general framework of value-sensitive design, we aim to operationalize the general concept of “Meaningful Human Control” (MHC) in order to pave the way for its translation into more specific design requirements. In particular, we focus on the operationalization of the first of the two conditions (Santoni de Sio...

Robot Care Systems (RCS) is involved in the development of the WEpod, an autonomous shuttle which can transfer up to six people. Based on a predefined map of the environment, the shuttle is able to navigate through mixed traffic its perception sensors such as camera, radar and lidar sensors. This study is acquired in collaboration with RCS and...

Assuming that cars in the near future will be fully electrical and capable of driving autonomously with or without any human on board. This resulted in two main topics in the research, architectural changes and ability to add to sustainability of buildings with these future cars. The conclusion was basically that we can reduce uses space of a...

One of the biggest challenges for an autonomous vehicle (and hence the WEpod) is to see the world as humans would see it. This understanding is the base for a successful and reliable future of autonomous vehicles. Real-world data and semantic segmentation generally are used to achieve full understanding of its surroundings. However, deploying...

In the past years a number of SAE level 2 driving automation systems have come available in commercial vehicles. An example is Volvo's Pilot Assist, which provides a more comfortable journey for the driver as certain parts of the dynamic driving task are taken away, but it still requires the driver to be attentive in order to supervise the...

Modern cars are increasingly being equipped with automated driving functions. For governments it is important to gain insight in the mobility impacts of automated vehicles. This is important as the introduction of automated vehicles affects current investment decisions about infrastructure projects and other policy measures like road pricing....

Self-driving cars have developed rapidly in recent years, diminishing the technological barriers blocking the introduction of the technology. Besides these technological barriers however, there are other issues, such as user acceptance, that need to be dealt with in order for autonomous vehicles to be successfully introduced to the market. One...

The city of Amsterdam has been growing and it continues to grow. While both the amount of visitors and the amount of residents continues to grow, the amount of public space stays approximately the same. This has led to an increasing pressure on livability, accessibility, and public space. Pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers alike often face the...

How should autonomous vehicles (aka self-driving cars) be programmed to behave in the event of an unavoidable accident in which the only choice open is one between causing different damages or losses to different objects or persons? This paper addresses this ethical question starting from the normative principles elaborated in the law to...

The timeline for mobility starts with the invention of the wheel 11.500 years ago. Another 5.500 years pass before the next paradigm shift of the wheeled car. A gradual series of technological advances eventually accelerated to the invention of the first ‘’auto’’mobile. During the 20th centure things are speeding up: Automatic transmission,...
