Preparing for Connected and Automated Vehicles: Results from EU - U.S. Research Collaboration

Tuesday, January 14 8:00 AM- 9:45 AM ET
Rachel James, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA),
Wolfgang Backhaus, Rupprecht Consult

Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Vehicle-Highway Automation (Changed to ACP30 on 4/15/2020) (AHB30)

In early 2018, an agreement was signed between research contractors for the USDOT and the European Commission to “twin” three projects on the topic of developing connected and automated vehicle (CAV) driving behavior models and assessing their impact on the traffic stream. This special session will detail the twinning agreement, the developed CAV driving behavior logic and applications, the EU and U.S. case studies, and a planning framework towards automation-readiness.
