Safe interaction of pedestrians and cyclists with automated transport (SIPCAT)

Safe interaction of pedestrians and cyclists with automated transport (SIPCAT)

On July 5th, the kick-off of the Dutch project 'SIPCAT' took place. The project investigates the interaction of pedestrians and cyclists with automatic transport in a 3D Virtual Reality environment. This Virtual Reality environment is a copy, or 'Digital Twin', of the Marineterrein Amsterdam Living Lab (MALL). In this way, experiments can take place at the actual living lab in Amsterdam and in the virtual copy in Virtual Reality. The experiments contribute to knowledge development in the field of 1) interaction of pedestrians and cyclists with automated transport and 2) the applicability of Virtual Reality in this type of research.

The project is led by Delft University of Technology and receives funding from the 'Accelerator 2020' call developed by NWO and TKI Dinalog. SWOV contributes as a consortium partner from its expertise in the field of interaction with self-driving vehicles.
