AutoDrive - Automated driving to make future mobility safer, affordable, and end-user acceptable

AutoDrive objectives aimed for the design of (i) fail-aware (self-diagnostics), (ii) fail-safe, (iii) fail-operational (HW and SW redundancy) electronic components and systems architecture that enable the introduction of automated driving in all car categories.

Contact person


The heterogenous V2X communication platform pilot site demonstrated the deployment of advanced electronic systems in use-case scenarios for supporting safe fail-operational functions covering both V2V and V2I communication. 

These scenarios are vulnerable road users warning (VRUW), intersection movement assist (IMA), green light speed advice/time to green (GLOSA/TTG), emergency electronic brake light (EEBL), forward collision warning (FCW), blind-spot warning (BSW), and lane change assistant (LCA). 

In addition, the vulnerable road users (VRUs) warning scenario transmits a warning via V2I communication RSU-enabled lighting poles to the OBU of the host vehicle when VRUs, such as pedestrians or animals, are on the road. 

The VRUs are detected by a radar that communicates with the RSU, and the streetlights during the night are automatically activated as soon as vehicles and/or VRUs are detected in the area.
