SIS31: Approaches to road vehicle automation in different regions

Date and hour: Wednesday 7 October 2015 at 16:00 - 17:30

Venue: Hall 2 - Room 221


SIS19 - An integrated approach towards automated transport systems

AdaptIVe project coordinator Aria Etemad, Volkswagen AG will speak on another ITS Special Interest Sessions under topic 6 - Automated Roads, Automated Management, Automated Driving.


Presentation is available here.


The goal of this special session is to debate how the introduction of automation in all the different elements of transport, namely vehicles with main focus in cooperative automated driving applications, infrastructure, and operational system (control strategies, etc.) would enhance mobility in modern societies. The speakers and attendees will discuss how intelligence and automation could be diffused in all these elements to increase efficiency and safety of the whole transport network. Furthermore, different approaches for the implementation of automation will be also addressed during this session.


SIS19 is organized by AdaptIVe partner Angelos Amditis, Research Director, Institute of Communication and Computer Systems, Greece.
