Road Vehicle Automation 9

This book is the ninth volume of a sub-series on Road Vehicle Automation, edited by Gereon Meyer (VDI/VDE-IT) and Sven Beiker (Stanford University), and published as part of the Lecture Notes in Mobility. It gathers contributions to the Automated Road Transportation Symposium (ARTSymposium), held on July 12-15, 2021, as a fully virtual event organized by the Transportation Research Board (TRB), and as a continuation of the annual summer symposia on automated vehicle systems. Written by researchers, engineers and analysts from around the globe, this book offers multidisciplinary perspectives on the opportunities and challenges associated with automating road transportation. It highlights innovative strategies, including public policies, infrastructure planning and automated technologies, which are expected to foster sustainable and automated mobility in the near future, thus addressing industry, government and research communities alike.
