We are excited to announce the commencement of a new opportunity for the public to be actively involved in shaping the future of automated vehicles (AVs). As part of the Innovate-UK and CCAV funded D-Risk project, all members of the public can share their opinions of how automated vehicles should behave during risky, unpredictable events on the road.
As part of our work in the Innovate UK and CCAV funded D-Risk project, Claytex would like to ask for your help in completing a survey.
The D-Risk survey forms an important part of this project – enabling public engagement with the programming software and ensuring real-world data is collected and integrated into the development of future automated vehicle validation technology.
The survey is live until 28th February 2021 as part of the wider D-Risk project. The project is focused on creating a library of vehicle scenarios such as pedestrians stepping out into the road unexpectedly or a vehicle appearing quickly around a blind corner. The project aims to then ensure that AVs are tested against these scenarios.
The newly launched survey provides an opportunity to:
- Share your opinion on vehicle responses to recognisable events on the road. Some of the responses are based on human behaviour, others – AV behaviour!
- Expand the library of edge cases – we, the project team, want as many scenarios as possible to feed into AV models to ensure they can respond to anything. And by anything – we mean ANYTHING (road-related of course)! Weird story of when a pigeon flew into your windscreen? Or a person appeared in a very odd location whilst cycling down the road? All stories, anecdotes and strange occurrences are welcome here!
Please take part in the survey now by clicking here!
