Service level framework for automated road transport
A study on how to classify the Finnish road network from the automated vehicles operations’ point of view. The result is a framework for service level classification for automated vehicles.
The Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency (FTIA) prepares for the increasing number of automated vehicles at the Finnish roads by studying feasibility of the selected motorway section (Highway E12 between Helsinki and Tampere) for the operation of SAE Level 3 and 4 automated vehicles.
The study has resulted in a proposal of a way to classify the Finnish road network from the automated vehicles operations’ point of view, i.e. a framework for service level classification for automated vehicles. The proposal will introduce further actions in research and development work, as well as in international cooperation.
The study includes database queries and reports, data analysis, field inventory and measurements, literature reviews and interviews. Also, materials from international programs such as Mantra, EU EIP 4.2, C-Roads, CCAM Platform & Clusters and CEDR.
The results are to be used in the planning of the next CCAM PoCs that link the road transport automation and digitalisation to road infrastructure maintenance.
The study is led by the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency. Download Final Report.
