During the course of the MAVEN project, stakeholder involvement was always among our top priorities. With several workshops we discussed with road authorities and other external stakeholders what was most important to them in the context of automated driving. With this input and the knowledge resulting from the technical work, a transition roadmap was made. This document presents the MAVEN project’s expert views and recommendations for the transition of traffic management at signalised intersections along urban corridors from the present conventional transport world into a connected, cooperative and automated world.
The consortium also looked further into the future with a white paper, exploring the intersection between ‘Smart Cities’ and ‘Smart Mobility’. While it looks at the wider technological innovations, it is written with a particular focus on the management of connected automated vehicles within the Smart Cities. One of the key factors that play here is the link with Mobility as a Service (MaaS).
Lastly, the project consortium also published a case study on unmanned logistics. This brings together the topics of the transition roadmap and the white paper, and applies them to the MAVEN use cases of the technical work packages. The simulations demonstrate clear benefits with the MAVEN use cases for a realistic future scenario with unmanned shuttles and pods entering the road network.
