How to make autonomous vehicles coexist with other traffic

Nordic a place for road and transport research


"The road infrastructure must be prepared for self-driving vehicles – especially in the beginning when the concepts are still new. Researchers are contributing to this through CoEXist, an EU-funded research project in which VTI participates as the largest partner." So it says on the Nordic web page which publishes articles about research projects in the Nordic countries. 

The article can be read on the Nordic page and those who are interested in more news from Nordic researchers can subscribe to the Nordic newsletter which is issued four times a year.

There is high interest in autonomous driving as can be read in the article and research is vital:

"The gap between the rapid technological development within automation and the traffic planning needs to be reduced. Researchers have an important role to play by strengthening the road authorities capacities to manage the anticipated imminent traffic situation, where human-driven vehicles will be mixed with partially and fully self-driving vehicles."
