PEGASUS – generally accepted approach for testing and approving highly automated driving
What should an automated vehicle be able to do? How can we prove that it can do its task reliably? 17 partners establish generally accepted criteria, benchmarks and elements of a tool chain to ensure safe approval methods and processes for automated vehicles.
VABENE++ traffic management for major events and disasters
Problems or interruptions in the critical infrastructure of the traffic system have significant impacts on general mobility and the ability to supply the population with goods and services. In the case of disasters or major incidents, road traffic in particular acquires a significance beyond this: police, fire service and rescue services rely on a functioning road network for almost all of their interventions.
VITAL – Vehicle-Actuated Intelligent Traffic Signal Control
Two novel control procedures for traffic light systems will be evaluated in the field. They are designed to utilize especially the data that stem from new data acquisition methods like vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, video or probe vehicle data.
TrackScan – detecting faults in track superstructure for condition-oriented maintenance
Where are there defects in a track? Should a defect be repaired immediately? Where could preventative work be performed before the damage occurs? The DLR TrackScan project is looking at track superstructure condition monitoring to derive processes for condition-oriented maintenance.
Transport and the Environment II – Urban Transport
How are transport and the environment connected?
Which actions have which impacts?
And how can we measure this?
UDRIVE – Naturalistic Driving Study
Selected drivers are observed over a period of several months during their daily driving to gather knowledge of their naturalistic driving behaviour. Sensors in their car acquire data on drivers, vehicles, and the surrounding traffic.
STREAMLINE – Optimierung der ETCS-Fahrzeugzulassung in Europa
Streamline zeigt die Engpässe bei der Fahrzeugzulassung im grenzüberschreitenden ETCS-Bahnverkehr auf. Mit Empfehlungen und Tools soll der Zulassungsprozess verschlankt und damit die Kapazität erhöht werden können – für eine schnellere Verbreitung von ETCS.
XCYCLE – Reducing cyclist accidents at urban junctions
Improved safety and comfort for cyclists through cooperative assistance is the aim of the EU project XCYCLE. The focus is on collision scenarios involving trucks turning right with cyclists having right of way at a complex urban junction.
Schorndorf Real-World Laboratory –
public transport on demand
The main bus and rail routes are supplemented by local buses that can be requested individually and which enable efficient transportation in low-frequency areas and at off-peak times. In order to achieve this, the local buses do not have fixed bus stops, lines or timetables.
