Needs, wants and behaviour of ‘Drivers’ and automated vehicle users today and into the future
Drive2TheFuture addresses the Horizon 2020 “Smart, Green and Integrated Transport” Work programme interested in “driver” behaviour and acceptance of connected, cooperative and automated (CCAD) transport. It aims to prepare drivers, travellers and vehicle operators to accept and use CCAD modes while also getting industry developers to understand the needs and wants of users.
The project aims to achieve these objectives by developing tools to promote and comparatively assess several alternative CCAD transport Use Cases and HMI for all transport modes. It will also research any relevant legal, ethical and operational issues as well as the interaction between automated vehicles and relevant MaaS. Using this information, Drive2TheFuture will issue guidelines, policy recommendations and a user acceptance path Roadmap to automation.
