PAsCAL project: results of 'Pilot 5' announced VULNERABLE USERS: YES TO CONNECTED MOBILITY CONNECTED MOBILITY MAKES PEOPLE INDEPENDENT AND CUTS TRAVEL TIME CONSIDERABLYConcerns about interaction between CAVs and traditional mobility. 84% of the vulnerable users (elderly, pregnant women, disabled, travellers with heavy luggage, parents with strollers) believe that a connected transport environment will help them to use public transport more easily and independently; 90% consider important a high degree of autonomy in daily mobility; 62% think that connected transport environments will cut travel time by half and 47% are willing to pay for this type of service.
How to improve pedestrian acceptance of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV)The answer comes from PAsCAL Project's Immersive Arena Many pedestrians do not trust autonomous vehicles: they fear that, towards them, this type of vehicle will not behave in the right way. This is the result of Immersive Arena analysis of Workpackage 4 (WP4), part of the PAsCAL*project. (link to the website www.pascal-project.eu) a series of experimental activities dedicated to evaluate pedestrian acceptance and behaviour in front of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs).
4 new projects on the European horizon of the autonomous drivingUnder the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, the European Commission has recently funded 4 new projects focused on driver behaviour and acceptance of connected, cooperative and automated transport: Drive2TheFuture, PAsCAL, SUaaVE, Trustonomy.
PAsCAL presents Pilot 5 resultsNews postOn October 28th, PAsCAL presented in an online workshop "Connected and Autonomous Vehicles: Inclusivity and accessibility considerations" the main results of Pilot 5, dedicated to vulnerable travellers.

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.
