Automated driving is expected to increase safety, provide more comfort and create many new business opportunities for mobility services. The so-called Internet of Things (IoT) is about enabling connection and data exchange between physical and/ or digital objects or „things“ using information and communication technology (ICT).
The projekt „AUTOPILOT – “Automated driving Progressed by Internet of Things“ brings IoT und the automotive world together in order to transform connected vehicles into highly and fully automated vehicles.
In the project „AUTOPILOT“ work 45 project partners from 15 countries together on the development and test of different use cases and mobility services of automated and connected driving. The focus lies on analysing the potential of IoT to improve automated driving. On five pilot sites in Europe and one in Korea different driving modes and driving services are developed, tested and evaluated.
The Institute of Transport Research at DLR analysis the user acceptance of the tested use cases as well as their potential to improve the individual mobility and the traffic system. The DLR Institute of Transport Systems leads the work on development of the IoT-platforms, services and automated driving functions and contributes to the development and tests of the use case “Automated Valet Parking” (AVP).

The project aims to bring together relevant knowledge and technology from the automotive and the IoT ecosystem in order to develop IoT-architecture and platforms which will bring automated driving toward a new dimension. The main objectives include development of safety related solutions, use and evaluation of V2X connectivity, assessment of socio-economic benefits of IoT from user and stakeholder perspective as well as development of standards.
In the project driving modes and driving services for automated and connected driving are developed and testes under real-world conditions. The tests are accompanies by technic, user acceptance, legal and impact on quality of life evaluation.
