PAsCAL at the PIARC Workshop on Connected Autonomous Vehicles and RoadsEventPIARC, the worldwide road association, is organising on 27 and 28 October the workshop “CONNECTED AND AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES AND ROADS: A PATH TOWARDS A SAFER FUTURE”.
The event will be organised in three sessions to explore CAV developments as well as implications:
CAV Road Safety Implications
The Human factor and Social Implications
Safe and Connected Infrastructural system
PAsCAL will be involved in session 2, discussing “A Guide2Autonomy from the different perspectives of different users…
Pilot 5: the new inclusive mobilityEventOn October 28th, 2021 will be held the PAsCAL event to present the results
A new opportunity from autonomous driving. On Thursday October 28th, will be held the event “Connected Autonomous Vehicles: Inclusivity and accessibility considerations” that will present the results of pilot 5, focused on vulnerable travellers in connected transport environments and aimed at better understanding the inclusiveness and safety needs of vulnerable passengers using CAVs.
This pilot, part of PAsCAL project…
CINEA LunchTime SessionNews postOn September 9th, PAsCAL participated in the EU Lunchtime Session "Do we trust self-driving cars? Social acceptance of automated mobility" organised for EU staff .
After an overview of Automated transport and CCAM objectives and overall landscape introduced by CINEA, the coordinators of the 4 EU funded projects, Drive2theFuture, PAsCAL, SUAAVE and Trustonomy presented the preliminary results of their projects.
Each from a different perspective, the 4 project focus on peoples' reactions - e.g…
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…
CORDIS covers PAsCAL's researchNews postHow do Europeans feel about self-driving cars?
How do Europeans expect connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) to affect driving efficiency, road safety, data protection and sustainability? A recent survey has the answers.
The News article has just been published on the CORDIS website in six languages at: https://cordis.europa.eu/article/id/434335-how-do-europeans-feel-about-self-driving-cars?WT.mc_id=exp
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…
