Workshop 'automated vehicles and urban traffic management'

Event date


The MAVEN stakeholder consultation group will meet for the first time in Barcelona to share information and views on the subject of automated vehicles and traffic management.

MAVEN, a new European research project starting in September 2016, will investigate the role of traffic management in a future of increasingly automated vehicles.It expects to cover a wide range of subjects, including

  • the role of road side equipment (eg, traffic lights);
  • interaction between the infrastructure and the fully automated vehicle in terms of eg, speed advisory, platooning or lane change advisory;
  • the impact on vulnerable road users (pedestrians and cyclists), among others.

Polis is a partner of Maven and will contribute to a number of tasks, including stakeholder consultation.

A small budget has been set aside to assist with travel expenses for local authority representatives attending the workshop.

This workshop is held in the day after the CIMEC-CODECS workshop on 'C-ITS and cities' also taking place in Barcelona.
