Multi-Car Collision Avoidance (MuCCA) Project: World’s first demonstration of collective collision avoidance between real cars.
Our Applus+ IDIADA team in the UK recently completed the Multi-Car Collision Avoidance (MuCCA) Project, a high-profile connected and automated vehicle (CAV) project. The aim was to develop and demonstrate an advanced safety concept in which several autonomous cars use vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications to cooperate in real time to avoid a collision. With this technology, a group of automated vehicles [...]

Cost-effective strategies for the international type approvals of different variants of radio equipment
When considering the requirements to access the global market for radio equipment, the EU and the USA are, usually, the first to be taken into account, mainly due to the importance of their markets and to their technical requirements, being the basis of most national regulations. EU and FCC test reports/certificates are widely accepted in many countries by the National [...]
What are Geographical Information Systems (GIS) Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have become the backbone of all functions surrounding the design, construction, inspection, repair, and maintenance of assets associated with a company’s pipeline systems. These geospatial information systems allow the company to visualize, in real time, the location of their assets and to have any information associated with them at their fingertips [...]
