Race Around Austria winner delivers data for the development of new, connected vehicle safety systems
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 of future's implementations of connected mobility solutions 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 connected, cooperative, automated driving 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
