In order to provide the Interoperable Simulator with a pedestrian-in-the-loop laboratory we have opened the access of the HIKER to the CAM testbed UK, so that a pedestrian in the HIKER can interact in real time with a vehicle driving on a remote proving ground in a safe manner.
These interactions represent a critical challenge for automated vehicles that need to negotiate with pedestrians for right of way in urban environments.
