The interACT Stakeholder Forum aims to engage companies and interested parties outside the consortium in the exchange of information, experience, and best practices with the project partners. The Stakeholder Forum members will have the opportunity to provide requirements or feedback to the project, and will be regularly informed about interACT news and progress. In addition, the Stakeholder Forum has been established to generate active interest and motivate all relevant stakeholders to contribute to the interACT work and ongoing discussions. It is anticipated that this will increase the adoption and sustainability of the interACT findings, thereby leading to a wide market uptake of the developed technological solutions.
In addition to the interACT Stakeholder Forum, strong liaisons will be established between the interACT consortium and other EU and nationally funded projects, such as L3Pilot, BRAVE, and TrustVehicle.
Twinning with US partners
Under the twinning activities of the EU and the United States Department of Transportation (US DOT), the US project “AV Intent – Automated Vehicle Communication and Intent with Shared Road Users” was selected as partner project for interACT. This project is sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The contractor is the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI), working with Westat as subcontractor with a lead technical role. Both projects will strongly benefit from exchange of research knowledge and results on human-human interaction strategies for AVs. In addition, cross-cultural difference will be identified and discussed for specific traffic scenarios, enabling insights into differing interaction requirements across locations.
