Are the vehicles safe without a driver?
The safety of passengers, drivers, researchers, and other road users, including pedestrians and cyclists, comes first and foremost for TU Delft and its partners. Depending on the automation of the vehicle, it may be able to independently respond to and anticipate the behaviour of other road users. For each test, it will be determined whether measures are necessary to preserve the safety of the groups mentioned above. Researchers and sometimes traffic controllers will steer the test vehicle in the right direction. However, additional awareness will be requested from the other road users. As always, they must pay close attention to traffic.
