The role of the infrastructure in the deployment of AV

The consequences of AV for our roads in terms of road safety and congestion have been the topic of a rich research stream. Nevertheless, safely scaling the deployment of AV in a congested mix of traffic will require multiple communication channels capable of offering a consistent flow to connected and non-connected vehicles featuring a wide range of automation levels. This presentation will discuss an architecture meant to address these challenges. This will include consistency in the communication flow across multiple channels; cross liabilities between the different entities providing broadcasting, sensing and perception, and event determination; interoperability between the infrastructure operators; optimizing the information plan.
