Session SIS67 – Integrated Road Infrastructure for Mixed Vehicle Traffic Flow on 31 October 2017 at 15:00 - 16:30

Below are the details of the session being held at the <link http:>ITS World Congress 2017:SIS67 – Integrated Road Infrastructure for Mixed Vehicle Traffic Flow Date and Time: 31 October 2017; 15:00 – 16:30Room: 513 ABCSession Type: Special Interest SessionTopic: A. Connectivity and AutonomyDescriptionAutomated vehicle (AV) manufactures are planning for the market introduction of vehicles with more and more automated functionalities. Steps towards the deployment of AVs are progressing fast, but the success of the transition towards AVs will largely be determined by the acceptance and actions of stakeholders that have so far not been part of the debate: motorway operators, urban road authorities, and other infrastructure related stakeholders. To be prepared for the gradual insertion of automated vehicles, there is an inherent need for adaptations at the infrastructure side, ensuring uninterrupted, predictable, safe, and efficient traffic. These can be divided into two main categories: advancements in the digital infrastructure and upgrades in the physical infrastructure. Those two instantiations of the infrastructure should be consistent and complementary. For example, in case a speed limit is adapted in the digital world, then this should be visualized in the physical one and vice versa. The session will present and discuss the current activities in the field of ‘hybrid’ road infrastructure and highlight how it can support, in a cost-efficient manner, the introduction of different levels of AVs in existing road networks including conventional vehicles.Organiser/s
