From 23 to 25 January 2018, members of the AUTOPILOT project met at the Automotive Campus in the Dutch city of Helmond. Throughout the so-called Plugfest, they worked on three essential parts of the AUTOPILOT adventure: sensor set-up, data processing and evaluation.
During the event, demonstrations on all driving modes in the project took place. The Dutch research institute TNO presented its set-up for automated platooning, featuring a car that draws on multiple communication channels (G5, WiFi, GPS and LTE) in order to prevent system failure even at higher speeds.
The German research institute DLR showcased its software solution for automated valet parking, which can be linked to car-sharing businesses as well.
Valeo, bringing their own vehicle from France for the event, demonstrated how the car senses road obstacles on highways. Sensor equipment, for instance, detects potholes or puddles and transmits this information to the IoT cloud.
Lastly, two further Dutch project partners, Technolution and TU Eindhoven, demonstrated their solutions for urban driving. Based on location mapping of surrounding sensors in the IoT environment, such as smartphones, their car will be rerouted in cities to avoid congested streets.
