Translating the SAMEN scientific findings to practical applications and implications

TU Delft and CROW have investigated the interactions between human drivers and automated vehicles in mixed traffic in the SAMEN project, which is essential for the transition to fully automated driving. The project focused primarily on driving behavior, and the scientific results have been published in academic journals. This publication translates the scientific insights into practical applications for professionals, such as road authorities and driving education providers. With input from CROW, RDW, and Rijkswaterstaat, a systematic approach has been followed according to the CROW asset management model, aimed at health, safety, the environment, and accessibility. The document discusses a ‘line of sight’ for safe driving with automated vehicles in mixed traffic, based on existing ADAS applications, and offers possibilities for further improvement based on the SAMEN research.
