AUTOPILOT will be speaking at this year’s HUMANIST Summer School. The Summer School intends to gather engineers, industrials, researchers, consultants, and public authority representatives active in transportation, the automotive industry, information and communication system design, ergonomics, psychology, sociology, as well as any other related fields. The Summer School will consist of lectures, discussions and practical exercises, involving and teaching participants in an interactive way.
AUTOPILOT representative Ms Nikolaou will deliver a presentation entitled “Infrastructure-based communication and interaction of the autonomous vehicle with vulnerable road users (cyclists, pedestrians)” on the second day of the Summer School. The presentation is particularly relevant to the collaborative perception concept that is being developed for the AUTOPILOT Versailles pilot site.
