Over a 19-month period (September 2020 - March 2022), PAsCAL pilots five innovative Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) systems, in order to validate the consortium's research efforts in a number of trials in the real world. The consortium carefully reviews each of the five solutions tested in order to further investigate the main factors that influence user acceptance of CAVs. By comparing the knowledge before and after the pilots, improvements in user acceptance are quantified to extrapolate recommendations for both governments and the automotive industry. However, due to the changed circumstances, it was necessary to radically modify one of the planned pilots. The Smart Emergency Responses pilot is not currently implementable, therefore PAsCAL has outlined the new Autonomous bus line pilot.

Citizens explore the future of CAVsNews postThe PAsCAL’s 5 pilots use connected autonomous vehicles in the real world, providing citizens the opportunity to test their effectiveness
The PAsCAL (Enhance driver behaviour and Public Acceptance of Connected and Autonomous vehicLes) project, funded within the H2020 programme of the European Commission, has officially launched its pilot testing phase. Each of the 5 pilots will focus on different aspects of Connected Automated Vehicles (CAVs) within existing transportation…
