Remote Emergency And Control Technique: Braking for Autonomous Vehicles

Reference number
Coordinator RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB - RISE ICT Viktoria
Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration October 2018 - June 2019
Status Completed
Venture Digital infrastructure and cyber security

Purpose and goal

Workshops have been organised to discuss: -Use cases for remote stop functionality of autonomous shuttle buses, where shuttles drive without a safety host but with the same level of passenger safety -Roadmap for development of the remote stop functionality and technical challenges regarding cyber security -Consortium for one FFI and two H2020 applications

Expected results and effects

In REACT the focus was on forming a consortium for the development and testing of secure remote control systems for autonomous shuttles in mixed traffic. This development is necessary in order to remove the safety hosts from the vehicles, while at the same time maintaining high level of safety for the passengers. Allowing for remote access is critical for broad market adoption of the self-driving buses - but puts new technical and practical requirements on the systems, not least related to cyber security.

Planned approach and implementation

During the workshops/use case refinements, the partners identified new technical and practical requirements on the systems, not least related to cyber security. Besides technical development, partners identified that there is a risk in the remote stop development, namely that we miss the regulation entities expectations as the legislative framework for remote operation of AV is still under construction in many countries.
