Autonomous vehicles and road safety: towards new training modules for drivers and driving instructors workshop
The road mobility environment is continuously evolving and vehicle types are beginning to change as a result of increasing levels of automation: at the present vehicle SAE2 are already circulating and the SAE3 ones are close to be deployed; their interaction with conventional vehicles and other road users, particularly the vulnerable ones are an increasing concern.
New education and training schemes (for both trainers and novice drivers) should be agreed at European level and implemented in a way which match the speed of the increased implementation of automated driving functions. The SIMUSAFE project is dealing with new standards related to the introduction of autonomous vehicles and this is the first one of a series of thematic workshops.
The list of participants can be found below, hence the SIMUSAFE related workshop presentations, voice recordings and proceedings can be found on http://www.aipss.it/eventi5-en.html website.
