Webinar – Road Network Design and Management for Automated Driving

January 18, 2021 10.15 - 12.00 h

On 20 January 2021, TRAIL PhD researcher Bahman Madadi will defend his PhD thesis Design and Optimization of Road Networks for Automated Vehicles at Delft University of Technology. The defence is public, and you are invited to join. The research of Bahman Madadi is part of the research program STAD http://stad.tudelft.nl/.

On the occasion of this public defence, TRAIL and TU Delft have set up a seminar on Road Network Design and Management for Automated driving. Relying on driving automation technology alone without infrastructure support might ‎compromise the ‎‎‎‎potential safety and efficiency of automated vehicles. Therefore, this seminar starts with a presentation on physical and digital infrastructure requirements of highly automated vehicles. Besides private automated vehicles also fleets of shared Autonomous Vehicles are expected to hit the market. An important question that will be addressed in two different presentations is how these fleets can best be managed. In this seminar, experts in the field will share conceptual and methodological advancements which will help governments and service providers to prepare for a future with automated vehicles.
