Expectations and Fears of the “Driverless” RevolutionNews postPAsCAL project: The Results of the Survey of the University of Mannheim
Road safety and sustainability key benefits of autonomous driving in the perception of the future European users, but strong privacy concerns emerge
Self-driving cars have for almost a decade been hailed as a potential transformational force for the transport sector. Autonomously steering through traffic, purportedly in a less accident-prone manner, their introduction might be a pivot point, away from the currently…
PAsCAL Project focus group discussions – Action summaryNews postThe PAsCAL project (Enhance driver behaviour and Public Acceptance of Connected and Autonomous vehicLes) is co-funded by the European Union under the EU H2020 programme. The European Blind Union joined this project as it plans, amongst other things, to collect information on “visually impaired travellers and the connected transport environment”. In response to a call from the EBU at the end of 2020, the Italian Union of the Blind and Partially Sighted (UICI) committed to organising 4 Focus…
Autonomous driving in virtual preview and full safetyNews postTwo sophisticated simulations to evaluate the acceptability and behaviors towards autonomous vehicles
Two experiments involving significant simulation resources and numerous volunteer subjects recently took place at UBFC, in the context of the PAsCAL project. Indeed, UBFC coordinates five simulation experiments of the PAsCAL project and directly operates two of them. The other three are carried out by the LIST (Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology) and the University of Liverpool. …
Simulators Applied to Road Safety for Behavioural Analysis and TrainingEvent2nd international meeting on Simulator Design, March 31st, 2021 - online
Simulators are widely applied in training environments, especially in where safety is a primary issue. Simulators for training have been used in the aviation sector for ages as a mandatory part of the education, not only for student pilots but also for professionally active ones. The use and application of simulators in road transport is an important aspect to be applied to enhance the capabilities of…
Citizens explore the future of CAVsNews postThe PAsCAL’s 5 pilots use connected autonomous vehicles in the real world, providing citizens the opportunity to test their effectiveness
The PAsCAL (Enhance driver behaviour and Public Acceptance of Connected and Autonomous vehicLes) project, funded within the H2020 programme of the European Commission, has officially launched its pilot testing phase. Each of the 5 pilots will focus on different aspects of Connected Automated Vehicles (CAVs) within existing transportation…

What Can eVTOLs Learn from Autonomous Cars? | Aviation todayNews postMore electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft companies are moving closer to certification and deployment and experts in the industry are looking to autonomous cars to predict the future of this emerging technology. During a March 2 Revolution.Aero town hall, industry experts discussed what lessons eVTOLs can learn from autonomous cars and how their roll-out might be different.
One shared aspect between the development of autonomous vehicles and eVTOLs is their predicted…

H2020RTR20 Conference - PAsCAL & FriendsNews post
The process of developing mobility in the coming years has long since taken the path that leads to the ever-widen spread of cars led by artificial intelligence. A shift that, however, in order to achieve the status of an effective improvement in living conditions for each, must first go through the most complete and possible widespread acceptance by the public globally.
To achieve this, Europe has in recent years put in place a series of projects that share the same common purpose: to speed…
