Interview with CK:PAP experts for EFA

Interview with CK:PAP experts for EFA Motor Transport Institute (pol. Instytut Transportu Samochodowego, ITS), is one of the partners of the Trustonomy project. In this interview, Małgorzata Pełka and Aleksandra Rodak tell us more about ITS leading role on driver training pillar. Trustonomy (Trust + Autonomy) aims to increase the trust and acceptance of highly automated vehicles through the research, experimentation and evaluation of technologies and approaches relevant to the development of autonomous driving, in…


The effectiveness of the AEB system in the context of the safety of vulnerable road users

According to the analysis by the National Police Headquarters, roughly 40% of all road accident victims in Poland are vulnerable road users (VRU), i.e. pedestrians and cyclists. Their protection has become one of the priorities for action regarding road safety. For this purpose, various activities are carried out aimed not only at human behaviour or the development of modern and safe road infrastructures but also at the development of modern vehicles, including advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).


ITS Leader Statuette for the AV-PL-ROAD project consortium

ITS Leader Statuette for the AV-PL-ROAD project consortium ITS Polska Association organized the 13th edition of the Polish ITS congress. The event took place in Warsaw on October 18-19 2021. Andrzej Bittel – Secretary of State in the Ministry of Infrastructure – presented his speech at the opening session. Next speech was presented by Adrian Mazur – Director of the Department of Transport Strategy of the Ministry of Infrastructure (DST MI). Guests of the Congress had…


Adaptation to driver-assistance systems depending on experience

Many tasks that until recently could only be performed by humans are now entrusted to machines. Automation plays an increasingly important role in many areas of life, and its special role is observed in broadly understood transport, affecting the mobility, behaviour, and safety of drivers. Faced with the threat of a large number of accidents, deaths, and injuries, vehicles equipped with driver-assistance systems, the so-called ADAS (advanced driver-assistance system), are a significant support for the driver in reacting to the unexpected situations. The studies conducted so far indicate that the experience of using these systems may increase not only the comfort but most of all the safety of road users. In Poland, such analyses are still a challenge.


Driver’s tasks in the context of the increase in the degree of automation of road transport

The publication adopts the SAE J3016 standard as the one that defines the level of vehicle autonomy. Gradually, the role of the driver, especially in terms of driving, will decrease, and the last 5th degree of automation will be achieved thanks to the complete elimination of the driver. Through the broadly understood research in the field of drivers' tasks (literature, information from enterprises and labor offices, face-to-face interviews), it can be stated that not all of them will be able to implement autonomous vehicles.
