Sarvesh Kolekar in various media
Self-driving cars can already do quite a bit, but driving as a human being requires something that algorithms cannot do very well: being insecure and careless. A new model that maps the mechanism behind human driving should change this.

Driving behaviour less ‘robotic’ thanks to new Delft model
Researchers from TU Delft have now developed a new model that describes driving behaviour on the basis of one underlying ‘human’ principle: managing the risk below a threshold level.

A protocol for flexible social distancing strategies
Full and prolonged levels of lockdown are unsustainable in the long run. More flexible social distancing approaches are already being applied in many countries and regions, while the tools for decision-making are still ‘work in progress’. TU Delft researchers are using applied mathematics to propose a tool for local authorities that enables them to apply a faster and more flexible approach to social distancing.

Dariu Gavrila in Trouw
What will the technology look like in the year 2020? Much has been said and written about this in recent years, from self-driving cars that dominate the street scene, to a network with internet-connected devices around us. What has come of those predictions?

Social behavior for autonomous vehicles by J. Alonso-Mora published in PNAS
Self-driving cars are coming. But for all their fancy sensors and intricate data-crunching abilities, even the most cutting-edge cars lack something that (almost) every 16-year-old with a learner’s permit has: social awareness.
