Non Hit Car & Truck
Purpose and goal
The Non Hit Car And Truck project aims to support Volvo Cars´ 2020 safety vision, which states that by 2020 no one should be killed or seriously injured in a Volvo car as well as the Volvo Group vision of zero accidents with Volvo products. 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.
Approach and implementation
The project has been carried out using the following organization. Steering committee, project manager, scientific advisory board and team manager x 5. Team Accident scenario definition Threat Assessment and Decision Making Driver state estimation Sensor Fusion System In order to solve the tasks has a project office been arranged for Team4 = Sensor Fusion (ÅF´s office Lindholmen) and Team2 = Threat Assessment and Decision Making and Team3 = Driver state estimation has frequently used Safers conference room Haddon at Lindholmen.
