Christina Stave

This pre-study explores the safety culture in project/companies with autonomous vehicles in operation. Safety need to be acknowledged and exercised at all levels in a company. Since automated vehicles is a new and innovative area, the blank spots need to be identified and analyzed, otherwise the risks can be transferred to others in traffic and environments that are poorly suited for human work can unintentionally be created. The study includes interviews with project leaders, implementing autonomous vehicles and a workshop with experts to discuss and document different aspects of safety culture in traffic automation. The main results will be presented in a short and useful safety culture manual or guideline.
