THI Consultants assesses traffic impact due to autonomous vehicles

THI Consultants evaluates the impact on traffic conditions arising from autonomous vehicles' running on roads as reference for their trial run, according to company president Jessica Lin.

The evaluation consists of three aspects: potential conflicts between autonomous vehicles and other cars, and between autonomous vehicles and pedestrians; whether autonomous vehicles running on outer lanes at low speeds interferes with traffic flows or causes traffic congestion; and decision making regarding traffic rules based on the former two aspects to minimize negative impact from autonomous vehicles.

Besides, THI has approximated actual traffic conditions using in-house-developed simulation software, enabling testing of autonomous vehicles' sensing systems and training them to cope with different conditions.
