Needs, wants and behaviour of ‘Drivers’ and automated vehicle users today and into the future

Drive2theFuture is a project that aims to prepare “drivers”, travellers and vehicle operators of the future to accept and use connected, cooperative and automated transport modes and the industry of these technologies to understand and meet their needs and wants.

To achieve this, it models the behaviour of different automated vehicle “drivers” & prognoses acceptance for several automated driving scenarios, develops specialized training tools, content, optimized HMI for “driver”-vehicle handovers, CEA and MCA studies for selection of most favorable automated functions realisation and demonstrate them in 12 Pilots across Europe. Pilots will cover all automated transportation modes (Automated car, PTW, truck, bus, minibus, rail, workboat and drones) and involve driving/riding/rail simulators, VR/AR simulation toolkits, test tracks and real-world environments, in which over 1000 AV drivers/passengers, 200 AV operators and 20.000 involved citizens experience automation.

Drive2TheFuture is coordinated by CERTH.
