AutoMate’s objective is to develop, evaluate and demonstrate the “TeamMate Car” concept: driver and automation are seen as members of one team and they share the driving task – perception, decision-making, and vehicle control. Through the achievement of this main objective, AutoMate is expected to positively impact several aspects: Improve road safety, by reducing both human errors [...]


The key human intervention in self-driving cars

This is not a common news of ADAS&ME project. The consortium is developing a number of actions in the most of work packages and use cases and preparing the next plenary meeting that will take place in Bologna at the end of this month. However, today we would like to highlight the following headline [...]

PROSPECT (Proactive Safety for Pedestrians and Cyclists) aims at developing a new generation of proactive safety systems to protect Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs), with an emphasis on pedestrians and cyclists. PROSPECT's starting point is a better understanding of relevant VRU accident scenarios (combining multiple European accident studies with urban naturalistic observations). Improved VRU sensing [...]



Managing Automated Vehicles Enhances Network (MAVEN) project is exploring the paradigm of a hierarchical self-organizing system: multi-level, top-down guidance of self-organizing dynamic platoons of cooperative automated vehicles. To this end the project is developing a generic multi-level system for the guidance of highly automated vehicles, applied to dynamic platoons at signalized intersections and signalized [...]


Cars of the future will smile back to you!

Today is the world's emoji day but... What is the relationship between emojis and ADAS&ME project? Future drivers will be able to get a feedback on their current mental and physical state while driving and while being driven.  A simple, efficient and subtle way to do this is by the use of Emojis that [...]
