  • Abstract

  • [SIP-adus Status Report Meeting (November 10)]

    Utilization and exchange of data for implementation of Society5.0

    Building a cyber-physical space for the systems based on road traffic environment data and utilization and collaboration with the data in various fields toward the realization of Society 5.0

    Development and utilization of traffic environment information

    Building and utilize a service platform based on map information built with automated driving, such as map update using vehicle probe information and traffic congestion prediction

    Toward realization of safe automated driving

    Efforts to realizing a safe automated driving society, such as FOT on public roads, construction of safety evaluation technology in virtual space, countermeasures against cyber attacks on automated vehicles, safety education methods for drivers

    Society with automated driving for universal services

    Communication(HMI ; Human Machine Interface) between people and automated vehicles, estimation of the effect of reducing traffic accidents by automated driving, and fostering public acceptance of automated vehicles

    [Online Symposium (November 11, 12)]

    Regional Activities

    Efforts for near future deployment of Level 4 automation seem to be focused on mobility services of people and goods provided by transportation operators. Under the limited complexity of driving environment, safety of Level 4 automation will be maintained, integrated with enhancement of both physical and digital infrastructure, and well structured operational strategies. Legal and regulatory framework, impact assessment and public acceptance are major remaining issues. Regional and national leaders will address challenges they are tackling and share their policy directions and initiatives with the audience.

    Service & Business Implementation

    This session, used to name "Next Generation Transport", will change its title to "Service and Business Implementation" from the coming SIP-adus Workshop, focusing on the challenges and activities for the early implementation of vehicle automation in public transport and freight services.

    Risk mitigation and Improvement of Acceptance in Last-mile automated driving vehicle will be discussed in this session including from the view point of vulnerable road users. New concepts of road and city structures may be one of the solutions for these issues.

    Dynamic Map

    Share the world latest examples of dynamic contents distribution/exchange with Dynamic Map and discuss the direction for further international collaborations and the possibility for the utilization of latest technologies.

    Connected Vehicles

    Over the past year, the environment for connected vehicles has significantly changed globally. I would like to have a workshop to understand the situation of each regions that changes drastically and to consider the future of Cooperative Connected and Automated Vehicles.

    Safety Assurance

    In March/2020 ALKS regulation was agreed in GRVA and the next step was started to be discussed. However the practical and comprehensive safety assurance framework has not been globally harmonized yet and the innovative methodology needs to be established. Especially the scenario DB and testing strategy like three pillar approach, which is test truck, real world, virtual, are the key of globally harmonized testing framework. In this session, the global experts who are leading the industry, research, and government project share the progress of the activity and figure out what the residual challenge, which needs the consolidation of global experts’ efforts.


    We are focusing on the IDS evaluation-guidelines and the collecting and saving methods of threat intelligence for the connected and automated driving vehicles. This session will report the current status of those activities by the experts of automotive industry, IT industry, and academia in each region. The importance to cooperate with each industry and academia will also be discussed to realize secured cybersecurity for connected and automated driving vehicles.

    Human Factors

    Human factors and Human Machine Interfaces are important factors to consider in designing and evaluating the automated driving systems in terms of safety. Presenters in this session will introduce activities for standardization, regulation and evaluation related to human factors and HMIs.

    Impact Assessment

    Diffusion of automated driving vehicles (ADs) will help to reduce traffic accidents, alleviate traffic congestion, resolve the driver shortage, and resolve other social problems. On the other hand, ADs are necessary to be installed with adequate consent by people and society.

    In this session, experts (from academia) will address views, issues, impacts and challenges on AD’s diffusion and then discuss future directions on installation of ADs to the society.
