CORDIS about AdaptIVe
AdaptIVe coordinator Aria Etemad, Volkswagen Group Research, was interviewed on project innovations by CORDIS. CORDIS is the European Commission's primary portal for results of EU-funded research projects.
In his interview, Etemad highlighted the technical achievements of AdaptIVe and underlined the importance of human factors when developing new automated driving functions. Another key topic discussed was the methods used for testing and evaluation within the project. In the article Etemad concluded:
‘In order to develop new solutions for, say, adaptive cruise control, you need to test drive up to 2M kilometres. For automated driving solutions, you might need to drive up to 100M kilometres in order to get approval. This is clearly not affordable, so we have identified possible simulation software that might help industry.’
The article titled "Putting automated technologies in the driving" is now available on the Results Pack of CORDIS: http://cordis.europa.eu/result/rcn/198032_en.html (→external link). The Results Pack is a thematic collection of project results tailored to the needs of specialised audiences who can further exploit them.
