|CO2perautoS2: Towards Cooperative Automated Vehicles|
|From 01.2013 to 12.2014||Completed|
The Spanish national co-funded project CO2perautoS2, running from January 2013 until December 2014, takes as a basis hybrid cooperative communication networks to introduce short term cooperative services for the urban environment and, on the other hand, explores new medium/long term cooperative vehicle automation applications to improve safety and congestion and to reduce CO2 emissions.
- Development of a communication platform allowing 802.11p and 3G communications, which will support cooperative services and vehicle automation applications.
- Development of in‐vehicle applications for public buses fleets and private vehicles which are connected with the infrastructure (mobility management center, fleet management center, traffic lights and delivery areas) in order to provide services oriented to the improvement of safety and efficiency.
- Validation of the solutions implemented in a controlled environment (test track) and final demonstration in the city of Vigo.
- Exploration of challenges and opportunities, as a mid‐term solution, of cooperative automated driving technologies, including the different elements in the value chain.
The cooperative ADAS and automated driving applications have been extensively tested. Some cooperative soft-targets were also prepared to test these potential future actions.
The cooperative ACC functionality has been tested in the high speed proving ground and in the real environment of SICOGA cooperative corridor.
Other cooperative automated driving functions explored within the project are “Cooperative Highway Autopilot”, “Cooperative Urban Autopilot” and “Cooperative Automated functions for public buses”.
Considering the whole objectives addressed in the project CO2perautos2, the results confirmed the maturity of the cooperative technologies to be implemented and deployed.
In the case of the objective related to the exploration of the challenges and opportunities of cooperative automated driving technologies, several promising results have been achieved within CO2perautos2. It is clear that cooperative technologies will very much support in the mid-term the development and deployment of automated vehicles.
