Welcome to the Knowledge Agenda on Automatic Driving, an initiative of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, Department of Transport and the RDW-Vehicle-approval, to provide an online overview of available and required knowledge in the field of automatic driving.
The overview is divided into a number of knowledge domains to map the various facets. In the library you will find an extensive collection of reports, papers and presentations, including summaries and background information. The library is used worldwide. The last report on Ethics was requested 674 times in a short time! About 30 pieces are downloaded every day.
The collection of knowledge documents is managed in Dropbox. With Dropbox you can search directly in the folders with documents and full text. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to gain access to the Dropbox.
Since 2015 we keep a list of knowledge questions (the required knowledge). Our collection of documents provides an answer to these knowledge questions. New questions are coming up because we are getting further and further into the implementation of “Connected Automated Driving”. The set of knowledge questions includes the topics automated driving and Smart Mobility (ITS). Additional overviews with projects are available here on the ITS theme. Experts on themes also develop knowledge and standards in the Netherlands/EU; an overview can be found here.
The popular knowledge questions are:

Our general view on this matter is that driving will first get more complicated (level 3), since the human driver and the auto-pilot must work together and transition of control is considered full off risks that the human driver should be aware of. From SAE level 4-5 the demands for the human driver will decrease. In the end-scenario (level 5) we picture that the car/autopilot must gain a license, and the human becomes a passenger and forgets how to drive a vehicle. [Joop Veenis]
