Road Users


In recent years, vehicles have become increasingly equipped with sensors, cameras, and computers, almost like moving servers with perception and communication abilities. As a result, the vehicle paradigm is changing as vehicles are becoming more software-defined.

This shift is opening up new business opportunities and revenues, as well as enabling game-changing features such as zero-accidents and autonomous driving. These advanced technologies are transforming the way we think about transportation and have the potential to revolutionize the way we travel.

They offer the potential for increased safety, efficiency, and convenience, as well as the opportunity for new business models and revenue streams. As technology continues to advance, cars will be at the forefront of this revolution and it is likely that we will see even more significant changes in the way we use and interact with vehicles.

Vulnerable Road Users

A vulnerable road user is a person who is at a higher risk of being involved in a traffic accident due to their mode of transportation or their physical or cognitive abilities. Examples of vulnerable road users include pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and people with disabilities.

Especially with the increasing modes of urban transport, the growing number of vulnerable road users and their safety becomes increasingly important yet difficult to maintain. They are incentivized to participate in the network through the reward mechanism for making their trip information available to the relevant road users that they have a high probability of interacting with and might pose risk to them.
