On 16 March 2020, TRAIL PhD researcher Freddy Mullakkal-Babu will defend his PhD thesis “Modelling Safety Impacts of Automated Driving Systems in Multi-Lane Traffic” at Delft University of Technology. The defence is public, and you are invited to join.
Moreover, on the occasion of this public defence, TRAIL and TU Delft have set up a seminar on “Safety Assessment of Automated Driving and Intelligent Transportation Systems”.
Emerging systems such as automated driving characterised by information and communication technologies and artificial intelligence are shaping a new horizon with respect to the safe and efficient operations of road traffic systems. It is of paramount importance to understand and predict the safety performance of such systems in order to manage them in the future. This seminar will discuss recent advances in safety modelling, control and assessment of emerging systems in road traffic.
