ANDATA presented the project COPE (Collective Perception) and the methodological approaches it pursues for the development of networked algorithms for the development and avoidance of collisions with vulnerable road users. The development and safeguarding of such dirstributed algorithms require new forms of cooperation and collaboration, for which Braunschweig with the accomapnying test field of Lower Saxony offers excellent conditions.
The winner of the Race Across Germany 2021 is Dominik Meierhofer!
That way “our” development and test bike rider for the project COPE pursues his success story of 2021 and continues to deliver invalueable data for the develoment of collision avoidance systems for vulnerable road users.
We congratulate cordially on the safe way to Vision Zero!
The teams of Joanneum Research and ANDATA executed their first recordings for a high-precision “Digital Twin” of Hallein this week. The subsequent day, equivalent measurements were done in Linz with the support of DigiTrans.
The 3D models serve as a fundament for vehicle and traffic simulations, in which the effects of the various vehicle algorithms for collision avoidance with the help of vehicle-to-motorcycle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication in combination of different vehicle and infrastructure sensors are investigated in a wide variety of configurations with different behavioural patterns of the vulnerable road users.
This year’s Race Around Austria starts on Wednesday, Aug. 13th, 2020. Last year’s winner Dominik Meierhofer will be back, now supported also by ANDATA and the project COPE.
The project COPE is about developing new vehicle safety systems to prevent collisions and dangerous situations with vulnerable road users (cyclists, motorcyclists, pedestrians), starting in September 2020. This is to be done with the help future’s increased connected mobility by interconnecting road users with each other and with the infrastructure. The methodology for this is carried out by means of artificial intelligence for the assessment and cooperative awareness of traffic situations with collective perception.
With an average of more than 15,000 kilometres on the bike per year, Dominik is the ideal candidate for the collection of the relevant bicycle scenarios and situations to develop future’s networked, cooperative, automated vehicle functions. ANDATA will incorporate the situations collected by Dominik into the scenario database of the project COPE.
For the RAA 2020 we wish all the best! Drive save at full speed, being inspired by your pace! The race progress can be watched at https://race.perfect-tracking.com/race/raa2020/live
The both pioneering projects WienZWA and Connecting Austria are becoming a trilogy now. Whilest WienZWA dealt about the comprehensive validation of connected, cooperative, automated driving (CCAD), Connecting Austria puts the focus on the potentials of CCAD with respect to traffic and vehicle efficiency. COPE will extend the potentials of CCAD with respect to safety – especially for vulnerable road users. More details will follow here soon…
