The improvement of road safety, energy efficiency and comfort will be reached with the development of a virtual co-system, which will be able to support the driver.
Driver monitoring will be used to estimate the driver’s performance and state, including driver distraction and driver drowsiness. To minimise underload and overload situations, a layered approach of dynamic task repartition between driver and co-system will be used, starting with a conservative layer and expanding to more future-oriented layers that give the co-system more authority and allow for a more fluid transition of control.
Automated driving requires an adequate safety architecture from fail safe to fail tolerant. Therefore, a scalable vehicle architecture will be mandatory for the migration from single Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to a powerful automated driving concept.
Comfort, safety and the efficient usage of energy will be addressed by the HAVEit highly automated vehicle applications in passenger cars as well as in heavy duty trucks:
Automated queue assistance
Construction site assistance
Active green driving
After implementing the aforementioned applications, their benefit and impact will be assessed in relevant scenarios.
