Advancing automated driving


The European research project AdaptIVe aims to achieve major breakthroughs leading to more efficient and safer automated driving. AdaptIVe targets an ideal interaction between drivers and automated systems by using advanced sensors, cooperative vehicle technologies and integrated strategies. To make automated driving a reality, AdaptIVe will not only address technological aspects, but also important legal issues that might impact successful market introduction. Over the planned 42-month duration of AdaptIVe, the partners will develop and test new functionalities for cars and trucks, offering both partially automated and highly automated driving on motorways, in urban scenarios, and for close-distance maneuvers.

EICT supports the project by providing operational project management as well as dissemination and exploitation services. Tasks include work plan monitoring and reporting, internal communication and organisation of meetings and public events. Furthermore EICT is coordinating dissemination and promotion activities. Highlights are the creation of a project identity and dissemination strategy along with the design of printed materials and the maintenance of the online communication channels.
