IBEC 3 Evaluation of Connected Automated Driving, Bordeaux 2015

IBEC 3 – Evaluation of Connected Automated Driving Date and hour: Thursday 8 October 2015 at 13:30 – 15:00 Venue: Palais des Congrès – Room E1 & E2 Organiser: Alan Stevens, Transport Research Laboratory, UK   astevens@trl.co.uk Moderator: Richard Harris, Xerox, UK Speakers: Reinhard Pfliegl, Austrian Agency for Alternative Propulsion Systems, Austria Marcia Pincus, US DOT, United States of America Tobias Strauss, KIT Karlsruhe Institute for Technology, Germany Pirkko, Rämä, VTT, Finland Andrew Somers, Transoptim, Australia   Session Description Highly or fully automated cars and trucks raise new questions about evaluating benefits and costs. They promise to: (i) improve traffic safety by reducing driver workload and minimizing human errors due to driver distraction or reduced vigilance; (ii) increase mobility through reduction of congestion (iii) reduce vehicle emissions and fuel consumption; and (iv) provide individual, organizational and commercial productivity improvements. But to what extent, are these benefits likely to be realized? How will drivers actually behave and react? What happens when there is a crash — are occasional tragedies something we can factor in to the benefits and costs calculations? What new metrics and performance measures do we need to consider in deployment? The session will focus on the challenge of evaluating these potential benefits and costs, with illustrative evaluation studies. What impact will result to road infrastructure? Less cost for operation and installation of electronic/communication equipment or improved cost (installation/operation)?   Audience Policy-makers and funders of vehicle automation trials Engineers involved in practical evaluation Session Output: Summary in IBEC newsletter Invitation to audience to join IBEC (for free) and access evaluation...

IBEC Framework for a White Paper on ITS Evaluation

IBEC Framework for a White Paper on ITS Evaluation Prepared for Sharing At the 21st World Congress on ITS in Detroit, Michigan September 7-11, 2014 What is IBEC? The International Benefits, Evaluation and Costs (IBEC) Working Group was established in 1999 and is an internationally recognised cooperative working group of more than 500 transport professionals around the world helping to coordinate and expand efforts to exchange information and techniques, and evaluate benefits and costs of ITS. IBEC seeks to: • promote the value of evaluating benefits and costs of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) • coordinate and expand internationally these efforts, and • exchange information and techniques on evaluation approaches in use or development. IBEC brings together worldwide knowledge and experience and is the focal point for discussion and debate of interest to the international ITS evaluation community. IBEC encourages more effective use of ITS evaluation information so that decision-makers can make more informed ITS investments. IBEC also support ITS deployment and evaluation specialists in the development and incorporation of evaluation activities into ITS implementation projects from initial “before” evaluation to final “after” evaluations, which enhance the ability to measure success and derive recommendations for decision makers. The IBEC Management Committee recently decided that IBEC would develop this “Framework for a White Paper on ITS Evaluation” as a means to promote the evaluation of benefits and costs of ITS. This paper explains why we should evaluate ITS, introduces the basic aspects pertaining to what and how to evaluate ITS, and concludes with a proposed ensemble of next steps. Why evaluate ITS? IBEC and its members want to point out the important...

Cost benefit workshop on ITS applications for safe cycling in Vienna – October, 25, 2012

Parallel to the ITS World Congress in Vienna, the SAFECYCLE project organizes a workshop on Thursday 25 October 2012 from 14.00 – 16.30 h. in Vienna. In the past 1,5 year the SAFECYCLE project has researched how ITS could help to improve the safety of cyclists. The results of this study will be presented during the workshop, including a cost-benefit analysis of the 11 most promising ITS applications with respect to improving the safety of cyclists. Attached you will find an invitation for the SAFECYCLE workshop, including a preliminary programme. Note: The workshop is free of charge and includes a bicycle tour through Vienna.   Click here to read invitation final conference...

Report: Worldwide situation of road pricing and assessment of its impacts

The report of Technical Committee “Road System Economics and Social Development” presents the state of road pricing schemes implemented or studied in the world, the corresponding developments and an assessment of their impacts. The panorama of pricing schemes covers the following twenty-two countries: Austria, Canada,      Czech Republic, Denmark, USA, Spain, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Mexico,  Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, United Kingdom, Singapore, Slovak Republic,  Sweden, Switzerland, and those of the Economic and of the West African Economic and Monetary  Union. The impact of different pricing methods on: characteristics of mobility, the environment, road  safety, the economy, social equity and acceptability are examined from fifteen case studies  presented in appendix. The examples covered range from urban congestion schemes to the impact  of the internalisation of externalities accompanying the revision of the Eurovignette Directive,  through the experiences of pricing related to the distance traveled. Note: A copy of this report is now added to the Documents sections of the IBEC website.   Tolling – 20121129-100006-7524-gtkp financing...
