SIP-adus Workshop 2021

Abstracts & Speakers List

Service and Business Implementation / FOTs
In this session, we will discuss how we can think about the feasible business model for automated driving and how to integrate autonomous driving into local transport.
Human Factors
Public transport services using automated shuttles and busses are expected to be a key solution to the social problem of limited mobility in rural areas and have been tested in fields in various countries. High level safety is essential for social implementation and wide spread of the services. In automoted mobility services, both system and service are designable. The larger degree of freedom in design is expected to bring breakthroughs for the inplementation but may raise new risks due to the complexity. In this session, human factor challenges for safety of the automated mobility services in various contries will be shared.

The "Service and Business Implementation / FOTs" and "Human Factors" sessions will be held jointly this year.
