Close Communications for Cooperation between Cybercars [Print to PDF] [Print to RTF]
Total cost:EUR 4 044 500
EU contribution:EUR 2 068 000
Funding scheme:STREP - Specific Targeted Research Project
This research proposal is driven by our vision that, in the not too distant future, Cybernetic Transport Systems (CTS) based on fully automated urban vehicles will be seen on city roads. Such systems have been developed and evaluated in the scope of the CyberCars and CyberMove projects of the 5th FWP and are now being deployed.
However, these present CTS can only operate in low demand environments where little interaction between vehicles is anticipated. In order for this system to address high demands, more cooperation between vehicles is needed. This is the topic of this proposal, based on vehicle-vehicle and vehicle-infrastructure communications and vehicles coordination. We will address in particular the cooperation between vehicles running at close range (platooning) and at intersections (merging, crossing). We will also explore, how regular vehicles equipped with Advanced Drivers Assistance Systems (ADAS) can benefit from close range communications and become, in some limited environments, fully automatic vehicles (dual-mode).
One of the objectives of the project is to develop a communication architecture for the long term which is interoperable and fully compliant with existing or soon to exist standards such as the CALM architecture.
The CYBERCARS 2 project supports the eSafety initiative for the development, deployment and use of Intelligent Integrated Safety Systems in Europe.
