Webinar on road safety assessment of AVs

27 May 2021


14:00-15:30 CEST

Connected and automated transport systems (CATS) are expected to have considerable impacts on mobility, safety, the environment and society as a whole. The Horizon 2020 project LEVITATE aims to forecast these impacts.

During this webinar, LEVITATE proposes to discuss which road safety impacts can be expected from CATS and how the different types of impacts are quantified within the project. Several partners will present their findings:


  • Welcome and introduction – Andrew Morris & Wendy Weijermars
  • Road safety impacts of CATS that can be expected – Rins de Zwart
  • Questions and feedback – Moderator, Wendy Weijermars
  • Quantification of impacts within Levitate:
  • Approach: Rins de Zwart
  • Estimation of impacts using microsimulation – Amna Chaudhry
  • Estimation of impacts on Vulnerable Road Users – Andreas Hula
  • Closing remarks – Wendy Weijermars
  • Questions and feedback concerning the quantification and closing remarks
