Safety and Capacity Analysis of Automated and Manual Highway Systems

This paper compares safety of automated and manual highway systems with respect to resulting rear-end collision frequency and severity. The results show that automated driving is safer than the most alert manual drivers, at similar speeds and capacities. The authors also present a detailed safety-capacity tradeoff study for four different Automated Highway System concepts that differ in their information structure and separation policy.
