Purpose and goal
The overall objective of the project was to build up knowledge and develop functionality for automated driving of long combination vehicles. The focus was on the traffic situation management (TSM) functionality domain,
Expected results and effects
This project have initiated the aim of reaching automation level 4 for commercial heavy vehicles on one-way multiple lane highway driving. This will be followed up with a larger research programme, called ´Highly Automated Road Freight Transports´ this will share knowledge between customers of container transport between Borås Viared and Göteborg Harbor, and sensor suppliers to realise the physical sensor platform for long combination vehicles. A large share of the achieved results has furthermore also been spread outside the partner constellation in form of publications.
Planned approach and implementation
The project ran according to what was planned. All partners have also contributed as intended in total. Content wise, the project group has developed and verified functionality for automated driving on automation level 3 of one way multiple lane highway for long combination vehicles. The developed functionality includes traffic situation predictions, traffic observations, traffic situation manoeuvres with decision making and execution of the most feasible predicted plan.
