Safety Assessment of Automated Vehicles
The presentation will focus on the current safety needs and potential of highly automated vehicles (HAV; SAE level 3 and 4) and the challenges to effectively assess the safety impact of HAV. Human factors, interactions with other road users and impact assessment are few of the important topics that need to be studied to ensure a safe deployment of HAV on public roads.
