Smart Interaction – Pedestrians and vehicles in a CAV environment

“Semi-controlled” crosswalks exist because of the desire for pedestrians to cross there and the use of stop signs or signals is not warranted. However, there is a sufficient amount of interaction between pedestrians and vehicles at “semi-controlled” crosswalks to be concerned about the time at which “negotiations” between pedestrians and human drivers are replaced by interactions between pedestrians and self-driving vehicles. If the appropriate sensor and control technology can lead to an alternative to “CAVs always yield to pedestrians”, we will have achieved a form of “smart interaction”, which can be a useful element of smart mobility.
