While the technologies for autonomous driving on highways are well advanced, the challanges for driving assistants, semi-autonomous and autonomous driving in the complex environment of inner cities are not. This challanges are addressed within the InVerSIV-project.
Project duration: 01.07.2016 - 30.06.2019
To solve the existing problems for autonomous cars in megacities a sensorfusion between the cars sensors and traffic infrastructure equipped with sensors to sense their environment is done. This enables a more detailed view of the environment compared to the cars own sensors and furthermore this data can be enriched with additional local or global knowledge.
By this project the complex scenario of megacities shall be controllable for autonomous cars and furthermore outside traffic participants that are not equipped with own sensors like pedestrian, cyclists or even older cars shall be protected, as possible risks are recognized early and appropriate counteractions can be applied.
The InVerSiV project is funded by the federal state of Northrhine-Westphalia and the “European Regional Development Fund” (EFRE) 2014-2020 under grant number EFRE-0800422.
