Aleksandra Mankiewicz from our partner, APTIV, has written this post describing how APTIV designed and built the SIMUSAFE test track for Cycle 2.
A former airport runway for small planes was chosen for the track area outside of Krakow. This choice was made due to its large, open space giving the possibility to adjust the area to simusafe’s needs by organising a simple urban infrastructure and perform experiments in controlled conditions. The priority was to create an isolated space which could be treated as a normal road and driven in one lap, including elements such as roundabout, an intersection with a left-turn and pedestrian zebra crossings. To create the track a company with professional road marking equipment was rented.
The paint used was temporary, durable enough to sustain rain but possible to be removed at any moment under high-pressured water. Lane markings painted in such a way were noticeable from greater distance, and closely resembled markings used on actual roads and in simulation. The infrastructure required also traffic signs, which were acquired and placed adequately to normal traffic conditions on such roads. Besides, 2 traffic lights were acquired and programmed to serve a zebra crossing and control traffic flow of a car and a pedestrian. The design was enriched by a dummy, hidden behind a tent standing on the side of a road and sliding across the path of the car in order to induce surprise.
The track territory had to be fenced and closed every day to the public for the duration of tests. Additionally, two containers were rented, one for staff and storage, and a sanitary one.
Fig 2 presents overall track design. The track and track surroundings were also closely recreated in the simulation.
The SIMUSAFE Consortium was scheduled to meet up in Coventry, UK last month. Three weeks before we were all scheduled to meet. Coventry and ITCL met online and decided to transfer the meeting to an online format for the health and safety of all the partners.
More than 40 team members spent two days online with each other discussing the project, sharing our progress, and brainstorming. We recognized the upheaval the coronavirus is causing to everyone as well as to our data collection. Part of the meeting was spent working through how we can work to support the project and each other while staying healthy and safe. It’s an ongoing exploration and will be through the course of this pandemic and after.
The March newsletter by EFA is out. In this issue, EFA explores what the current status is of the Driving Schools in the EU due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Other topics covered include the latest report by LEARN! on sets out their current recommendations that should be implemented in all European countries to ensure all citizens of all age groups receive “high quality traffic safety and mobility education”.
Shortly before the COVID-19 lockdown, several of the SIMUSAFE partners gathered in Milano, hosted by our UCSC partners. In preparation for the start of Cycle 3 data collection, we all met to be trained on the multiple tools which we will all be using.
Project partners were trained on biometric kits from TMSI–the SAGA and the Mobi. We were also trained on the Vienna and TAP tests. These are to help elicit information about each participant’s driving and riding personalities and behaviours.
We are happy to say all partners are healthy and safe, working from home and being productive, moving the SIMUSAFE project forward.
In January, the SIMUSAFE partners met in France for our second meeting. There was substantial discussion surrounding preparing for Phase One of the project doing Naturalistic research with each of the modes.
