Abstract

Vehicles (both passenger and commercial ones) and tyres are evolving, traffic conditions are changing, technology is moving forward and therefore the interaction between vehicles and roads is likely to undergo a major change in the next 20-30 years. Road designers and managers as well as vehicle and tyre manufacturers have to be aware of how the planned developments will impact the infrastructure and how they have to account for these changes. To address this issue, PIARC Technical Committee 4.2 “Road/Vehicle Interaction”, Working Group A, planned two activities: - conducting a survey of the current implementation in road design and management of monitoring techniques that can keep track of current and future developments of vehicle technology and traffic composition; - identifying the potential evolution in road vehicle interaction with respect to three major areas of interest:  Design and loading;  Safety and road-vehicle communication;  Monitoring techniques. A workshop involving all potential actors (car, trucks and tyre manufactures, pavement designers and managers, road contractors, monitoring device manufacturers etc) was held during the XXIIIrd World Road Congress (Paris, September 2007) to identify the potential evolution in and impact on road-vehicle interaction. This paper presents the preliminary considerations by the authors on this matter
