Prestudy - Safety self driving vehicles (SAE level 4/5) at AstaZero

Reference number 2018-01931
Coordinator ASTAZERO AB - AstaZero AB, Göteborg
Funding from Vinnova SEK 475 000
Project duration June 2018 - June 2019
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

Review safety routines and testing procedures on the test track as well as identify areas that need to be developed in order for AstaZero to safely handle self-driven vehicles.

Expected results and effects

Increased understanding of built-in safety and emergency stop functions in a self-driven vehicle (without driver on-board) Overview of possible interface issues in case of direct access to vehicle emergency stop functions Comparison of how today´s requirements, rules and routines to maintain high safety on the track work without the ability of drivers on board the vehicle. Identification of areas where development work will be required to be adapted to self-propelled vehicles Design of development work Updating of routines where no development work will be required

Planned approach and implementation

The project will be conducted in the form of a pre-study in which existing procedures and processes will be reviewed. Discussions with OEMs who today tests self-driven vehicles on AstaZero will be held.
