ABSTRACT. The objective of this paper is to systematically review connected vehicle data, spatial recognition technologies, and machine learning and computer vision algorithms. The findings and analyses highlight that autonomous mobility technologies leverage vehicle and pedestrian detection tools, road environment data, and environment mapping and predictive control algorithms. Throughout May 2022, a quantitative literature review of the Web of Science, Scopus, and ProQuest databases was performed, with search terms including “social ethics” + “autonomous vehicle routing and navigation” + “spatial recognition technologies,” “environment mapping algorithms,” and “mobility simulation tools.” As research published in 2022 was inspected, only 188 articles satisfied the eligibility criteria. By taking out controversial or ambiguous findings (insufficient/irrelevant data), outcomes unsubstantiated by replication, too general material, or studies with nearly identical titles, I selected 35 mainly empirical sources. Data visualization tools: Dimensions (bibliometric mapping) and VOSviewer (layout algorithms). Reporting quality assessment tool: PRISMA. Methodological quality assessment tools include: AMSTAR, Dedoose, Distiller SR, and SRDR.

Keywords: autonomous vehicle; routing; navigation; spatial recognition technology; environment mapping algorithm; mobility simulation tool
