Purpose and goal
The FFI project ´WAVE integration to V2X functionality´ (WV2X) has met the objectives set at the start of the project. The project´s objectives have addressed the overall FFI targets from a base technology perspective. Through research leading to development of new concepts and innovations for wireless communication between vehicles (V2V) and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I), together referred to as V2X, creates conditions for development of new functions, primarily in the areas of active safety and eventually autonomous driving in future vehicles . WV2X is a contribution to this.
Expected results and effects
The three project partners (Volvo Cars, Actia and Kapsch) have got a deeper understanding of IEEE WAVE including similarities and differences compared to the ETSI ITS G5. The project developed common specifications for WAVE and ITS-G5, implemented a prototype dual protocol stack and verified the prototype in laboratory environment. In December 2016, NHTSA announced a V2V Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, based on WAVE, which indicates that the project partners are well prepared for future product and solutions development based on experience and knowledge gained in the WV2X project.
Planned approach and implementation
The project was structured in the following work packages (WP): WP 0: Project Management (VCC) WP 1: Requirements and Use Cases (VCC) WP 2A: WAVE System Design and Implementation for retrofit solution (Kapsch) WP 2B: WAVE implementation for future vehicles (Actia) WP 3A / 3B: Verification of WAVE in laboratory environment retrofit solution / Future Vehicles (Kapsch / Actia) Project Management was based on monthly reports and meetings in the project team, steering group meetings, workshops and project seminars. This approach and realization worked very well in the project.
