Remote Emergency And Control Technique: Braking for Autonomous Vehicles
|Coordinator||RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB - RISE ICT Viktoria|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 500 000|
|Project duration||October 2018 - June 2019|
|Venture||Digital infrastructure and cyber security|
|Call||Feasability studies within cyber security and reliability|
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.
