Driverless cars are likely to influence the future of mobility. But how will pedestrians interact with driverless cars? And what would be the best, safest and most sustainable design for a transportation system that accommodates all modes of traffic? Together with Pedestrian Mobility Switzerland and the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa), we go to the municipality of Thalwil to examine the interactions between pedestrians and vehicles with automated parking systems in the context of a pilot study.
- Assessment of the latest international research on driverless cars and pedestrians
- Conduction and evaluation of tests involving the use of automated parking systems in the municipality of Thalwil
- Survey of pedestrian passersby to ascertain their subjective sense of security in the vicinity of self-parking cars
- Presentation of recommendations for a secure, urban, allmode mobility system
