Automated Vehicle Technology: Ten Research Areas to Follow

In July 2013, the Transportation Research Board and Stanford University cosponsored a workshop on the challenges and opportunities related to the increasing automation of motor vehicles and the environments in which they operate. In this article, the authors trace ten major topics with related research questions culled from the workshop’s breakout sessions. The topics are as follows: human factors and human-machine interaction; infrastructure and operations; testing, certification, and licensing; energy and environment; V2X communications and architecture; automated commercial vehicle operations; shared mobility and transit; liability, risk and insurance; cybersecurity and resiliency; and data ownership, access, protection, and discovery.
