Commercial Vehicle On-Board Safety Systems Roundtable



Commercial Vehicle On-Board Safety Systems Roundtable - Chair's Summary

This ITF Roundtable covered the following specific issues:

  • What CMV-specific technologies for automation exist, covering different platooning (two or more vehicles) concepts and full automation?
  • What are specific implications of the range of technology options on  infrastructure requirements and human factors?
  • In what way can such a system interact with both manually operated passengers cars and manually operated CMVs that are not part of such a scheme?
  • How can the potential wider societal and economic benefits be locked in, without risking other additional negative effects (e.g. multiple trucks close together at merging areas)?
  • How do these systems need to be regulated in order to allow safe operation; should this be driven by industry or should governments assist development?
  • What are the policy implications of heavy vehicle automation in order to ensure safe operation; how are liability, security and privacy concerns being addressed?
