Supporting the interaction of Humans and Automated vehicles: Preparing for the EnvIronment of Tomorrow

Project description

Paving a pedestrian-safe way for self-driving cars

Walking is great for our health and the environment, but it can be dangerous. In Europe, nearly a quarter (21 %) of all fatally injured road users are pedestrians. In cities, it is almost a third. While measures to improve vehicle and road user safety as well as transport infrastructure (like intersections and crosswalks) is underway, experts are already planning for when autonomous vehicles (AVs) hit Europe’s tricky-to-navigate city roads. The EU-funded Shape-IT project aims to facilitate the safe integration of AVs into tomorrow’s mixed urban traffic environments, using both existing and new research methods. It will design advanced interfaces and control strategies and integrate knowledge on human/AV interactions into models to perform safety assessments.
