This paper collection is the second volume of the LNMOB series on Road Vehicle Automation. The book contains a comprehensive
review of current technical, socio-economic, and legal perspectives written by experts coming from public authorities, companies
and universities in the U.S., Europe and Japan. It originates from the Automated Vehicle Symposium 2014, which was jointly
organized by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and the Transportation Research Board (TRB)
in Burlingame, CA, in July 2014. The contributions discuss the challenges arising from the integration of highly automated
and self-driving vehicles into the transportation system, with a focus on human factors and different deployment scenarios.
This book is an indispensable source of information for academic researchers, industrial engineers, and policy makers interested
in the topic of road vehicle automation.
