7.3 Infrastructure Operation
It is likely that current service level requirements will no longer be appropriate and will require adjustment for self-driving vehicles. The network will still need to be able to reconfigure/adjust when required for roadworks and upgrades, etc. This will ultimately mean finding effective ways of transmitting temporary or short‑term locational data to self-driving vehicles close by (i.e. short-term I2V).
Operation of autonomous vehicles (AVs) require attention to both the physical and digital infrastructure. These two areas are discussed in the following sections.
