Table 9 Final list of 13 recommendations which were selected for Benefit Analysis (with new numbers)

From: Recommendations for actions concerning supporting ITS developments for VRUs

No Recommendations Systems affected
R1 Research for the improvement of VRU detection accuracy and classification for in-vehicle and infrastructure systems INS, BSD, PCDS + EBR, VBS
R2 Research on road users behaviour in traffic, especially of pedestrians (children) and prediction of intentions; including dynamics modelling of VRUs INS, PCDS + EBR, VBS
R3 Research on strategies for warning road users to make the system more efficient and less annoying BCD, PCDS, VBS, INS, B2V, PTW2V
R4 Research on optimal and efficient user interface design (e.g. information presentation, less distraction, reduced workload, integration of user interface in bicycle, helmet, vest etc.). PTW2V, B2V, GWC, BSD, PCDS + EBR, INS, VBS
R5 Reliability considerations (including harsh weather conditions and light pollution) should have a standard place in procurements of infrastructure related systems GWC, INS, CAL
R6 Testing of the systems in controlled situations and simulator testing to increase understanding of the interaction of different categories of VRUs with the systems GWC, B2V, PTW2V, IPT, BSD, PCDS + EBR, VBS, INS
R7 To design traffic light control, depending on the overall traffic demand (both vehicles and pedestrians) to minimise traffic delays for all road users while taking into account VRU needs and policy goals for safety, throughput, emissions and mobility IPT
R8 Standardisation of the functionalities of the systems, including VRU related cooperative systems and communication between VRUs and vehicles, that are required to enable interoperability B2V, GWC, PTW2V, VBS, BSD, PCDS + EBR, CAL
R9 Creating field tests and system evaluations to provide more evidence on benefits, limitations and costs BSD, PCDS + EBR, CAL, IPT, IVB
R10 Traffic signal systems for intersections should be able to adapt to different environments in order to accommodate for different traffic management schemes and different environmental conditions IPT
R11 Integration of different (cooperative) functionalities in a single device GWC, B2V, PTW2V, IVB
R12 Create legislation that all trucks and buses should have blind spot detection systems with sensors back and at both sides BSD
R13 Ensure that privacy of all road users is guaranteed through development and use of proper procedures for data exchange, data collection and storage, and use of collected data B2V, GWC, PTW2V, IPT, IVB, VBS
