This webinar is part of PIARC's Special Project “Smart Roads Classification”, with the support of Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain), that aims at exploring the feasibility of a new framework for the classification of the road infrastructure based on its physical characteristics as well as on its reception capacity of the automation and connectivity of the vehicles.
Given that the presence of Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) is on the increase, it is necessary to explore a new Smart Roads Classification (SRC) system that provides information to users and vehicles on their degree of adaptation to automated driving. This information should range from indicating which road sections do not allow any type of automated driving, to sections that are ready for any automated system, going through various intermediate degrees depending on the technology.
In order to achieve a simple-to-use and rapid-to-implement tool, a first draft for the SRC system has been developed.
The objective of this webinar is to collect feedback from all worldwide stakeholders on:
- How they approach the notion of Smart Road Classification, What are the challenges and opportunities that you identify?
- How you rate the criteria and principles that were used to develop this draft SRC system. Do you agree with them?
Your feedback will help us propose a more relevant classification system which would be adapted to different conditions and needs, and to identify challenges and opportunities for road operators and administrations.
