i-CAVE: Integrated Cooperative Automated Vehicles


Project Description

This STW research programme addresses current transportation challenges regarding throughput and safety with an integrated approach to automated and cooperative driving. In i-CAVE a Cooperative Dual Mode Automated Transport (C-DMAT) system is researched and designed, consisting of dual mode vehicles which can be driven automatically and manually to allow maximum flexibility. The programme integrates technological roadmaps for automated and cooperative driving, accelerating the development of novel transportation systems addressing today’s and future mobility demands. Besides these enabling technologies, focus is put on fault tolerance and fail safety, wireless communications, human factors and others addressing transition of control between manual and automated driving and response of other road users. i-CAVE addresses this by implementing RADAR-based communication, allowing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to be used as both radar and communication devices, realizing a more robust and synergetic approach to sensing and communication for safe high-speed automated and cooperative driving.
