Artificial Intelligence (AI)is considered one of thekey enabling technologiesthat can lead to the successful deployment of AVs. Indeed, AI can revolutionise the future of automotive mobility services by taking advantage of the huge amount of sensor data that it can assimilate.
However, the benefits of AI in automated mobility are hampered by ethical risks that can compromise its adoption by vulnerable road users (VRUs) such as pedestrians, cyclists, or persons with disabilities.
The EU-funded AI4CCAM projectwas launched in January 2023 to address this hurdle by developing trustworthy tools and solutions for AVs using Artificial Intelligence. Since January 2023 UITP participates in this project, which gathers 14 partners from across the EU.
Taking into account all the capabilities and potential risks of AI,AI4CCAMwants to create models that can be used in automated services and will anticipate vehicle, pedestrian and cyclist behaviour, further advancing safety and user acceptance of AVs.
