Testing Autonomous Driving Vehicles in a Mixed Environment with Pedestrians and Bicycles

The paper describes the results of the first demo test of the “CityMobil2” project, involving two automated public transport vehicles operating without barriers in a pedestrian area. After describing the demo and its operations, the paper focuses on the information acquired in terms of performance, interaction between vehicles and pedestrians, the level of acceptance, perceived and declared, the legacy of the demo for the prosecution of the CityMobil2 project, the process of legalization of automated vehicles. A description of the analysis of data is provided, along with a summary of the information obtained. Finally, the paper outlines some possible applications of this technology, and especially its combination with high-quality cycling infrastructures, and the resulting synergies.
