The objective of Highly Automated Driving is to give the driver continuous support to improve road traffic safety and fuel efficiency.
The Sub-Project includes the development and validation of 4 innovative cutting edge highly automated vehicle applications. The vehicles will be equipped with numerous sensors to monitor both the driver and the complete surroundings of the vehicle. Sensor technologies used are laser, radar, electronic horizon, cameras and also other state of the art sensors.
Using environmental information Highly Automated Driving will support both in driver overload situations and in driver underload situations. The environmental information from the support system will also be used to further improve the fuel consumption and CO2 reduction in active green driving applications.
