MEDIATOR clustered with three other Horizon 2020 projects (Drive2theFuture, HADRIAN and Trustonomy) that also address how the acceptance and safety of automated driving vehicles could be improved. Several discussions took place that resulted in an accepted proposal for a panel discussion at the TRA Lisbon 2022 conference.
The session addresses the current problems and limitations of human drivers interacting with automated driving vehicles and proposes solutions from the perspective of the 4 different H2020 projects that have investigated this problem. In this invited session, the four projects will provide complementary perspectives on the problems and propose concrete solutions to facilitate the uptake of automated driving across Europe. A set of recommendations will be put forth that represents a joint assessment from the four projects concerning next steps, specifically:
To address current problems of AD standardization and harmonization, establish an EU regulatory institution to set forth a harmonized implementations of AD in Europe that allow for proactive legislation und rulemaking to facilitate common AD experiences of drivers across brands and models.
Establish harmonized and consistent education and training curricula for drivers to develop the appropriate knowledge and competences for using AD that is standardized across different brands and models.
To support wide-spread acceptance and uptake of AD across Europe, focus AD developments around the users mobility needs using user-centered methods in local R&D centres of excellence that engage users with diverse backgrounds on a sufficiently wide range.
The recommendations will be discussed and attendees will be able to respond and formulate their views:
