Result Non Hit Car And Truck: 1. Sensor Fusion framework that support current existing sensors 2. 360 degree view of the environment 3. New function independent threat assessment called´ Maneuver Generator´ that creates collision-free escape paths for complex traffic scenarios 4. Demonstrator vehicle with the technologies/findings visualized

Results and expected effects

Competitiveness in specific subject areas such as sensor fusion and function development has been strengthened in that way that all parties have had the opportunity to educate and thus increase the amount of persons with knowledge of the subject. Both AB Volvo and Volvo Cars have several ongoing projects there the Non Hit Car And Truck knowledge can be applied and used directly to help strengthen the research and innovation capacity. The international connection will probably be greater after the project in future European cooperation projects.
