HAVEit aims at the realization of the long-term vision of highly automated driving for intelligent transport. The project will develop, validate and demonstrate important intermediate steps towards highly automated driving.


  • Development and validation of the next generation of ADAS with an optimized task repartition between the driver and the highly automated vehicle, with higher level of automation compared to the current state of the art.
  • Optimum system joining and interaction between the driver and the co-system, by defining different degrees of automated driving, which will be selected according to the needs of the driving task.
  • Development and validation of a scalable and safe vehicle architecture that includes advanced redundancy management, in order to suit the needs of highly automated vehicle applications.
  • Haveit integrates 7 advanced vehicle applications categorized as: Highly automated driving, which will implement solutions for queue assistance, construction site assistance, temporary autopilot and active green driving; and Safety architecture application, which will present a migration concept and a demonstrator to show possible migration paths.


Haveit opened the road for industrialization of the achievements at all levels of the project: starting from improved algorithms for sensors, data fusion, and control via modules up to the highly automated vehicle applications, this way integrating different levels of support to automated driving.

The results achieved in terms of highly automated driving based on a network of on-board sensors, were excellent. The project results show that this generic architecture can be implemented on the state-of-the-art automotive control units.
