Boundary Conditions for Vehicle Automation (ARV)
Research Project , 2013 – 2014

Objective and Goal - Fulfillment The purpose of the project is to create a collaborative platform for the area of automated driving and traffic systems. Focus lies on non-competitive areas, where most or preferably all partners agree that the area is of common interest for further studies, research or cooperation with infrastructure holders. The project steering committee has agreed on three areas which will be subject to further analysis and research project applications. Result and Expected Effects - Outcome The project has delivered the following: * Three pre-studies for the selected areas for furhter research * One State-of-the-Art article to be published for FISITA 2016 * Four student reports from Chalmers (MORE) * A White Paper including the recommended intentions for continued collaboration The result from the project will be transferred to a new project for the year 2014. The purpose of this project will be to find and explore sub-areas within automated driving where Swedish automotive industry has the ability to take a position as global leaders. Approach and Implementation - Analysis Initially the project was cunducted through creative workshops with the support from Chalmers Departement of Technology in collaboration with Mines ParisTech. A series of workshops was conducted using the KCP method which aims at organizing innovation for a larger colletive. Ideas generated were prioritized and three selected areas were chosen for analysis in pre-studies conducted in collaboration between the industrial partners and the universities. Viktoria Swedish ICT wrote an article on ´State-fo-the-Art´ for automated driving - published at FISITA on June 2-6 2014.
