#H2020RTR21 Conference | Automated driving and the users

The H2020 Road Transport Research European Conference was back with its 5th edition on 29 & 30 March 2022. LEVITATE was on the agenda on the first day in the parallel session: Automated driving and the users.

Andrew Morris, Loughborough University, presented the results of LEVITATE. He was accompanied by Peter Moertl (HADRIAN), Michiel Christoph (MEDIATOR) and Núria Parera Sallent (Safe-UP) who shared their insights and the results on their H2020 projects.

The panel of aforementioned experts talked about the need for a holistic approach when it comes to understanding users and innovative mobility solutions, moderated by Ingrid Skogsmo (VTI) and Suzanna Kraak (Policy Officer at the EC). Diversity, inclusivity and safety were at the heart of the discussion. More R&I activities on this topic will be essential to put users front and center in the development of Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility!

Working paper on the road safety impacts of CCAM

LEVITATE aims to forecast impacts of developments related to Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM). Impacts are estimated for different so-called ‘sub use cases’ (SUCs) that reflect applications or interventions which can be implemented by policy makers. The impacts for the sub use cases are estimated by comparing the situation with intervention to the situation without intervention, i.e., the baseline scenario. The baseline scenario reflects the starting point for which increasing penetration levels of first cautious and later more ambitious automated vehicles (CAVs) are estimated over time. One of the relevant impact areas of CCAM is road safety.

This working document prepared by SWOV discusses in which way road safety is impacted by increasing penetration levels of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) and 2) quantifies the road safety impacts of increasing penetration levels of CAVs as far as possible.
