CAVWAY is a new vehicle proving ground that Applus+ IDIADA is constructing in the UK along with its partner, Prova Developments. It will provide a secure, controlled & connected proving ground suitable for the development and testing of connected & autonomous vehicles (CAV), as part of a UK national infrastructure of “CAM TestBeds”. It will [...]
In response to the emerging needs of the automotive industry related to connected & automated vehicles, Applus+ IDIADA has utilised its development and validation expertise to engineer a level four autonomous vehicle that meets the necessary functional requirements to safely operate whilst keeping overall car performance. Under the name of CAVRide, the demonstration was to [...]
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, [...]
The integration of IDIADA Spain Virtual Proving Ground (ISVPG) with testing and simulation software has strengthened virtual development and validation activities by offering new virtual scenarios for various applications such as comfort/durability simulations, driving simulator activities and ADAS & Autonomous Driving system development. ISVPG supports development activities by having the most important surfaces of [...]
Some of the principal benefits of developments in autonomous vehicles are improvements in safety and efficiency for road users. Central to these are transitions between manual driving and automated control. Here it is vital to consider the driver state and environmental conditions so that vehicle systems can adapt their functionality accordingly. Applus+ IDIADA is a [...]
Cyber attacks on connected vehicles present a real threat to the safety of road users, both for their physical safety and data and privacy. Much like passive safely, as a “hidden” quality of the motor, cybersecurity is only perceived by the user after an event. […]
According to the latest data available, in 2017 25.300 people lost their lives on EU roads; of which 21% were pedestrians and 8% were cyclists. These percentages help to explain the effort made during the last decade to progress in active safety, as a result of advances in video and radar technology. Some of these [...]
