Bridging Vehicles and Infrastructure with Car2X-Communication at ATTC Information Event

At April, 24th an exclusive information event of the ATTC (Austrian Traffic Telematics Cluster) about the introduction of Car2X-communication technologies in 2019 took place at the ÖAMTC center for driving techniques. The event was organized by ANDATA in close cooperation with Volkswagen, ASFINAG, Swarco Futurit, Automotive Safety Technologies, ÖAMTC and the project Connecting Austria.

It had been shown how the series solution for the upcoming product launches of Car2X-communication in 2019 will look like. The functions had been demonstrated live upon the examples of warnings for construction site trailers, breakdown cars, and emergency service vehicles. In addition the functions were shown in virtual reality and vehicles for the development of such connected, cooperative functions from ANDATA and ASTech accompanied the presentations and discussions with the attendant experts.

After the reduction of crash consequences (by structural vehicle measures, airbags, etc.) and the collision avoidance and mitigation (by autonomous emergency braking and collision warning, etc.) now the next level in automotive safety on the way to Vision Zero is launched. Namely Car2X-communication will be used for the active avoidance of dangerous situations.

The implementation of Car2X-communication delivers an essential technology component for future's cooperative, connected, (semi-)automated driving, which is promoted amongst others in the Austrian lead project Connecting Austria. This aims to put into effect common improvements in traffic and vehicle efficiency as well as in safety.

The contribution of ANDATA in the field is the integral development and safeguarding of the various functions and disciplines by the according control algorithms for (semi-)automated driving, reaching from sensor fusion and classification, localization, situation interpretation over manoeuvre planning to the predictive control of certain actions.

ANDATA presents "Scenario-based Validation of Automated Driving Functions" at Mathworks Automotive Conference 2019

The Mathworks Automotive Conference 2019 took place in Stuttgart at April 11th.

ANDATA has held a presentation there about "Scenario-based Validation of Automated Driving Functions with MATLAB". One of the key issues was the certain, mathematical description of the "Operational Design Domain" for automated driving functions in different hierarchy levels and functional modules. By means of an example from the Austrian lead procject in automated driving "Connecting Austria" it has been shown, how Machine Learning can be used to find out a relevant and representative set of scenarios for the development of complex driving and traffic control functions.

ANDATA & Connecting Austria at the VDI/VW Conference on ADAS & Automated Driving

At the VDI/VW Conference for Advanced Driver Assistent Systems and Automated Driving 2018 on Nov. 7th and 8th ANDATA will present the technological aspects of ConnectingAustria, the Austrian lead project for automated driving. Platooning will be the showcase for the effective development and validation of automated driving with strong support from infrastructure. Main topics of the presentation are platooning, connected mobility, automated and cooperative driving, scenario management, effectivity rating, traffic automation, validation of automated driving.

IEDAS Expert Dialog 2018 in Ingolstadt

The 4th interdisciplinary expert dialog IEDAS Active Safety and Automated Driving will take place at 24th and 25th October in Ingolstadt.

ANDATA will come up with some necessary and important issues for the application of scenariobased development, assessment and validation of automated driving functions with and for AI, resulting from more than a dozen years of intensive experience in the topic.

ANDATA at the 20th Evening Seminar of EVU Austria

The 25th evening seminar of the European Association for Accident Research and Analysis will take place on September 25th 2018 in Vienna.

ANDATA will contribute with a talk about New Development and Organization Models for Automated Driving. Further details can be found in the invitation.
