How are automated and human driven vehicles operate in safe and efficient way in mixed traffic? This is the opportunity to find answers and to join the SAMEN team.

Job description

The main responsibilities of the programmer and data manager in the SAMEN project will be: (1) to manage, store, and document the collected data within the project and to create code books; (2) assist the PhDs and postdoc in programming the various scenarios that will be tested in the driving simulator experiments (C/C++, JAVA, Python); (3) clean the collected data and make initial processing, and (4) build and maintain the project website.

The gradual deployment of Automated Vehicles (AV) in traffic will result in a transition period, in which vehicles with various levels of automation and Human Driven Vehicles (HDV) co-exist. As a consequence, new types of interactions will emerge between vehicles at different levels of automation. Proper understanding of how human drivers will respond to AVs, and how AVs could interact with HDVs rather than responding to them is urgent but lacking. This lack of understanding may result in unsafe and inefficient traffic situations. The unique aspect and aim of the proposed project is its focus on understanding and modelling the interactions between human-driven and automated vehicles based on empirical data. In this project behavioural theories and models will be developed and validated for the interactions between AVs and HDVs using a hybrid approach for data collection. We will underpin the behavioural theory using empirical data that we will collect from field tests using AVs. We will use advanced interactive driving simulators to study the interactions between AVs and HDVs. We will scale up the resulting interaction models in a dedicated traffic flow simulation platform to evaluate the implications of mixed traffic on traffic flow and safety.

A programmer and data manager position is open at Delft University of Technology as part of the SAMEN project ‘Safe and Efficient OperAtion of AutoMated and Human DrivEN Vehicles in Mixed Traffic’ and funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

In this project several industrial partners, a vehicle manufacturer, road authorities, and knowledge institutes are involved.
