Researchers develop technology solutions to enhance the safety and efficiency of connected and autonomous vehicles in complex road junctions
Researchers at WMG, University of Warwick have developed technology solutions for safer and more efficient automated driving when navigating complex road junctions such as roundabouts.
A new report launched by Dr Siddartha Khastgir of WMG calls for a codified set of rules to define safe and acceptable behaviour for automated transport systems as well as a scalable safety assurance framework.
An Operational Design Domain (ODD) is fundamental to Connected Autonomous Vehicle safety, however defining an ODD hasn’t been done before, until now, thanks to the work undertaken by German standardisation body ASAM and led researchers from WMG, University of Warwick.
Dr Siddartha Khastgir from WMG, University of Warwick, has been appointed to be on the DfT’s Science Advisory Council, where he will advise on a wide range of science and engineering issues, such as enrolment of Autonomous Vehicles.
From 11 to 15 October the European research project L3Pilot, which WMG at the University of Warwick have worked on led by Volkswagen AG and co-funded by the European Commission, showcases automated driving functions in the City of Hamburg and on motorways nearby. The four-year project will now come to its successful end with performing its Final Event in conjunction with the ITS World Congress in Hamburg 2021.
