Transport sector in the digital era relies more and more on high end transport research. The Europeans are expecting more and more integrated and cost affordable services in all transport modes and the European transport industry strives to evolve to more novel and competitive technological products and services. But which are the contemporary key challenges

The connected and automated vehicles will have to cope with other automated or not vehicles and connected or not road users (drivers, riders, pedestrians) and a priority negotiation will always be necessary, especially at junctions. The behaviour of both the drivers and of the autonomous vehicles is inevitably dependent to all the other road users.

At the digitalisation era more and more life activities are supported by digital systems and services, in which data and information are collected, processed, organised and re-directed through dedicated services to the end user but also to all parties involved in the planning, execution and management of these activities. All traffic and transport activities are

The Internet of Things and of Everything is steadily making easily available massive driving and travelling data, which present a very high potential for monitoring driving and travelling behaviour and subsequently provide customized feedback both to the driver/traveller and to the systems managers (public or private), which was never available before. It is the first

Which are the autonomous vehicles’ critical choices?

Today the driver makes choices, tomorrow the choices will be made by the autonomous vehicles, by the autonomous traffic and by the people managing them. So there is need to "train" the vehicles, the traffic and the people managing them on how to handle a number of fundamental choices. Firstly, a number of real time
