Safe interaction between cyclists, pedestrians and automated vehicles

2:15 min

Automated vehicles are gradually entering our roadway system. Before our roads will be solely used by fully automated vehicles, a long transition period is to be expected in which fully automated vehicles, partly automated vehicles and manually-driven vehicles have to share our roads. The current report looked into the position of pedestrians and cyclists in such a future traffic system. The report provides an overview of current knowledge, theoretically and empirically, about the interaction of pedestrians and cyclists with (partly) automated vehicles. Furthermore, it identifies what we need to know in order to ensure that an automated driving system, particularly during the transition period, does not compromise the safety of pedestrians and cyclists.
