VUB's CDSL is pleased to announce a new H2020 project that was won in the recent (November 2021) calls: AUGMENTED CCAM.
AUGMENTED CCAM aims to understand, harmonise and evaluate in an augmented manner adapted and novel support solutions of Physical, Digital and Communication (PDI) infrastructure, to advance its readiness for large scale deployment of CCAM solutions for all. The project will elaborate, extend and harmonise PDI classification and support levels mapping co-determined PDI priority requirements and adaptations. Based on this and by deploying an open sharing technology agnostic service operational framework and architecture for PDI enabled CCAM, addressing all CCAM actors via multi-cooperation models, the project will develop 11 PDI support solutions (aiming at TLR 6-7) that will apply and evaluate in different configurations in seven (7) test sites across three (3) European Countries (France, Latvia, Spain), encompassing a vast spectrum of physical (living labs, closed areas, open traffic highway, urban and peri-urban/rural environments) and virtual (DT, AV & driving simulators) test beds. AI and Big Data advanced techniques and crowdsourced HD maps will leverage the whole transport system and its users’ situational awareness, prediction and actuation. The different test activities findings, supported by micro and macroscopic traffic simulations, will allow the assessment of different PDI support on functional safety of the whole transport infrastructure, on traffic safety and efficiency, driving behaviour, environmental footprint, service reliability, trust & security, considering the socioeconomic benefits and costs of all actors, and the issue of roadmap and recommendations, proposing risk-aversion decision making tools and methodologies for policy making and CCAM - ready infrastructure investments.
