Automated Road Transport (ART)




Action type










InCo flagship 4

Human centred design for the new driver role in highly automated vehicles The proposed actions should include all of the following aspects:

–      Characterise driver roles in SAE automation level 4 situations and for the transition between use cases with different automation levels. Upgrade of comprehensive models for driver behaviour/reaction, awareness, readiness and monitoring.

–      Impact assessment methods, especially for safety aspects, based on these models.

–      Develop easily understood solutions making it clear to the driver what is the operational capability (authority) of the automated mode

–      Demonstration of concept functionality in real world situations with various use cases and driving environments

RIA 1 8.0

InCo flagship 4

Developing and testing shared, connected and cooperative automated vehicles fleets in urban areas for the mobility of all The proposed actions should include all the following aspects:

–      Thorough analysis of new, emerging business/operating models and related technologies for shared, connected and cooperative automated vehicle fleets that are complementing existing high-capacity public transportation systems.

–      Design innovative shared, connected, cooperative and automated vehicle concepts (road vehicles at SAE level 4 and higher) and the associated new business/operating models addressing user and customer needs, including cultural aspects, for mobility of people and/or delivery of goods.

–      Test robustness, reliability and safety of shared highly automated vehicle fleets that are operating in semi-open or open environments focusing on the interaction with other road users, including pedestrians, cyclists and public transport systems.

–      Vehicles should use connectivity technologies to allow communication and cooperation between vehicles, infrastructure and with other road users and to enable automated, smart mobility services, innovative fleet management concepts and higher performance of automated vehicle functions.

–      Identify and provide for the needs of vulnerable road users resulting from this new automated/mixed environment

–      Develop architecture, functional and technical requirements for ICT technologies, for secure data collection and processing needed for the operation of connected and cooperative automated vehicles.

–      Fulfil all security requirements to protect the shared automated vehicles to any threats and avoid any conscious manipulations of the information enabling automated driving.

–      Assess and demonstrate benefits of the pilot implementation on energy efficiency, traffic flow, safety, user appreciation etc, based on holistic modelling solutions.
