This chapter presents a summary of AVS 2016 Breakout Session 14, Reducing Conflict Between Vulnerable Road Users and Automated Vehicles. The session was scheduled to run for 90 min with approximately 60 min devoted to a panel of four speakers and 30 min of general discussion. The four speakers presented on a range of issues related to the intersection of VRUs and AVs. Key points included the need to develop usable, cross-cultural methods for pedestrians and AVs to communicate, the need to identify areas of opportunity and challenge relative to the current state of driver/VRU interactions, the need for further development and human factors testing of pedestrian-enabled mobile technology, and the importance of ongoing field testing.
