The aim of the PAsCAL project, is to improve the understanding of the implications of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) on society. The project will create a "Guide2Autonomy" to capture this new knowledge. Outcomes from the project will contribute to the training of future drivers and passengers and will help decision-makers to move towards the new forms of individual and collective mobility made possible by the spread of driverless cars.
During the PAsCAL project, the perceptions and expectations of citizens regarding the new autonomous and connected driving technologies will be examined, as well as the behavior of drivers in semi-autonomous vehicles and that of all other road users. To these purposes, specific surveys will be prepared and accurate behavioral analysis will be carried out with extensive use of modern technologies, such as driving simulators and virtual reality platforms. The results of the simulation experiments will provide a better understanding of the reasons for the distrust towards CAVs expressed by many European citizens. In addition, PAsCAL will finally create 5 road-transport pilot projects, conducted in different countries of the European Union.
All of this new knowledge will be incorporated into the "Guide2Autonomy" which will be made available to all relevant stakeholders.
