Description

The Role of Infrastructure for a Safe Transition to Automated Driving contextualizes the latest vehicle and road automation research and technology, focusing on the future role of road infrastructures. The book analyzes the problems an uncontrolled transition will pose and examines ways forward, covering risk, safety, and the influence of human factors in automated vehicles. Automated transport researchers, traffic engineers, and transport and city planners will find the book to be a great resource for addressing the complexity of the period during which both human-driven and automated cars will coexist. This integrated vision of different approaches to vehicle automation will help move the technology forward in a thought-provoking manner.
