New H2020 project looks at automated vehicles, dynamic platooning and network management: MAVEN - Managing Automated Vehicles Enhances Network

26 September 2016

The MAVEN project, Managing Automated Vehicles Enhances Network, kicked off in Brussels on 20-21 September. The project expects to cover a wide range of subjects, including the role of road side equipment (eg, traffic lights); interaction between the infrastructure and automated vehicle in terms of functions such as speed advisory, platooning or lane change advisory; and, the impact on vulnerable road users (pedestrians and cyclists), among others.

MAVEN will develop infrastructure-assisted algorithms for the management of automated vehicles and will build a system prototype for field tests and impact assessment, leading to the development of a roadmap for the introduction of vehicle-road automation to support road authorities.

The cities of Helmond (NL), Braunschweig (D) and the London Borough of Greenwich (UK) are the demonstration cities. Other project partners are: Dynniq (project coordination), MAPtm, TomTom, DLR the German Aerospace Agency, CTU the Czech Technical University, Hyundai, and Polis.

Stakeholders workshops

MAVEN is organising a stakeholders workshop targeting local authorities in Barcelona on Tuesday, 15 November. The aim of this first MAVEN stakeholder consultation workshop is to discuss and review the preliminary system concept, use case descriptions, and assessment and demonstration plan.

The workshop is organised back to back to a workshop on Cooperative-ITS and cities, jointly organised by the CIMEC and CODECS projects, will take place on 14 November.
