Unsettled Topics Concerning the Field Testing of Automated Driving Systems

Bob McQueen and Associates-Bob McQueen
  • Research Report
  • EPR2019009
Published 2019-12-19 by SAE International in United States
Automated driving systems (ADS) have the potential to revolutionize transportation. Through the automation of driver functions in the application of advanced technology within the vehicle, significant improvements can be made to safety, efficiency, user experience, and the preservation of the environment. According to the US Department of Transportation [1], there are more than 1,400 cars, trucks, buses, and other vehicles being tested by more than 80 companies across the USA. Implementation of ADS technology is well advanced, with many sites across the USA incorporating automated vehicles (AVs) into wider programs to apply advanced technology to transportation. Discussions with the public sector’s implementing agencies suggest that one of the barriers to faster progress lies in the lack of consistent and standardized field-testing protocols. This report looks at the state of the art of field testing for ADS and identifies areas for improved consistency and standardization. It will define the problem to be addressed by AVs and the challenges associated with the introduction of such vehicles and open-road situations. In particular, the report will look at the…

Beautiful smart byways~Recreational trip enhancement for the 90s

PB Farradyne, Inc.-Bob McQueen, Stephen Albert, Sameer Sharma
  • Technical Paper
  • 1996-16-0032
Published 1996-04-15 by Intelligent Transportation Systems in United States
This paper, while representing the views of the authors only, was inspired by work carried out under an FHWA study addressing the possible application of Intelligent Transportation Systems technologies to the Scenic Byways context. The study proved to be very thought provoking as the varied nature of the stake holder group was defined and as appropriate Intelligent Transportation Systems technologies were identified. The intention, in publishing this paper, is to share this experience with the Intelligent Transportation Systems' community and to attempt to further the effort to harness Intelligent Transportation Systems technologies in contexts other than metropolitan. Conclusions drawn in the paper confirm the value of a system architecture approach in accordance with the general philosophy of the National ITS Architecture, indicate the strong potential role for Intelligent Transportation Systems in the Scenic Byways context and identify areas of the subject where further work is required

Assessment of air quality impacts~IVHS implementations in Southampton and Cologne

Advanced Transport Technology Group-Paul J. Taylor, Bob McQueen
  • Technical Paper
  • 1994-16-0077
Published 1994-04-17 by Intelligent Transportation Systems in United States
This paper describes a study of the potential air pollution reduction effects of IVHS implementations in the cities of Southampton and Cologne. Both cities are participating in the DRIVE II Euro-Project SCOPE, along with the Port of Piraeus, Greece. The project involves the field testing and demonstration of advanced traffic management, travel and traffic information, and public transport information systems in all three cities, and the implementation of strategic information systems (SIS) in Southampton and Cologne. These systems will provide dynamic decision-making tools to assist in the future development of transport strategies.This paper includes a brief review of the proposed IVHS implementations in Southampton and Cologne and summarizes recommendations for the assessment and evaluation of air pollution reduction effects associated with the implementations. Work carried out to develop and modify the UROPOL air pollution prediction model, interfacing this with the existing traffic models in Southampton and Cologne, and with the Ford Motor Companies CVSP model is also described as is the development of a vehicle population classification model for approximating the emissions inventory of the…

New Techniques for Data Collection and Integration for RTI/IVHS

Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council-John Linsley
Ian Catling Consultancy-Richard Harris, Bob McQueen, Ian Catling
Published 1991-10-01 by SAE International in United States
Video surveys are being used in Doncaster to provide an up-to-date inventory of the highway network and street furniture. The techniques being used are closely related to those under development for the collection of network attribute data for Advanced Transport Telematics (ATT) / Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) systems, in particular for route guidance and navigation systems.The success of systems such as Autoguide, EURO-SCOUT (formerly called ALI-SCOUT), CARIN, Travelpilot and dual-mode route guidance will be critically dependent upon the quality of the data on which navigation and routeing recommendations are based. Experience, in London and Berlin in particular, has shown that the information presented to the driver throughout his journey needs to be accurate, precisely timed and in a large number of cases specifically tailored to the details of individual junction layouts. It is not possible to provide the quality of data necessary for system acceptance without detailed surveys of the roads on which guidance is to be given.Video survey techniques offer the flexibility to view road and junction layouts in a controlled office environment,…

The Development of IVHS in Europe

Ian Catling Consultancy, Ltd.-Bob McQueen, Ian Catling
Published 1991-08-01 by SAE International in United States
Over the past two years a variety of European IVHS initiatives have emerged, quickening the pace set by earlier development work such as Autoguide and LISB.Migration from early conceptual development to tangible technologies, almost ready for large-scale exploitation is well underway.In particular, the EC DRIVE Programme and the European vehicle manufacturers PROMETHEUS Programme have acted as catalysts in generating interest in the application of the new technologies.The complete range of European IVHS initiatives is wide and varied. However it is not our intention to offer a comprehensive overview in this paper.Instead, this paper covers an outline of current European IVHS applications and develgpments, focusing on those technologies that are, or likely to be, implemented on a significant scale, over the next 5 years.The impending implementation of such technologies promises to have a dramatic impact on almost every facet of society including the travelling public, commercial organisations and central/local government.The likely impact on such organisations is only now being defined and assessed. This is discussed in context with the observed responses from such organisations to date.The…
