Connected roads – enabling tomorrow’s technologies today
The typical road infrastructure consists of visual cues, as human drivers predominately use their vision to navigate around and drive their vehicles on the road. In a similar manner, most advanced vehicles today -as well as the ones currently designed for the future- also rely on cameras and sensors that help the vehicle ‘see’ the world around it. Human drivers will most likely co-exist with Connected Autonomous Vehicles on the roads for many years to come, possibly decades. This paper will look at the importance of designing road markings today for both types of drivers of tomorrow.
