Part of the Lecture Notes in Mobility book series (LNMOB)


The 2015 Automated Vehicles Symposium built on the successes of the predecessor meetings, with an even larger and more diverse roster of participants and a broader selection of breakout sessions. It was organized in cooperation with the University of Michigan’s Mobility Transformation Center, which provided an opportunity for the Symposium participants to experience a wide range of vehicle demonstrations at their new MCity test site. The plenary and poster presentations and breakout discussions continued to provide the meeting participants with the most up-to-date and authoritative information about the current international state of development of road vehicle automation systems, making this the essential meeting for industry, government and research people interested in the subject.
