The AVEAS project is now officially in full swing with the first overall workshop in Karlsruhe after more than two years of planning and preparation. By the end of 2024, our project, which is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK), will collect real data for the virtual testing of automated driving functions in critical situations: Data on human driving behavior via test vehicle, infrastructure sensors and aircraft; data on challenging sensor conditions; and data on human-machine interaction in VR trial studies which will serve as the bases for generating models and methods for virtual safeguarding.
For this purpose, the partners dSPACE, Continental, PTV Group, Allianz Zentrum für Technik GmbH, GOTECH, Spiegel Institute, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) as well as Fraunhofer Institute for High-Speed Dynamics, Ernst-Mach-Institut, EMI, Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation and Infrastructure Systems IVI and Fraunhofer IOSB are working together in the project under the leadership of understand.ai - with a budget of €10 million, including €6.2 million in funding from the BMWK. The project is supported, among others, by the associated partners TÜV SÜD, ADAC Württemberg, PBW-Parkraumgesellschaft Baden-Württemberg mbH, ALP.Lab GmbH, EDI GmbH - Engineering Data Intelligence, ASAM e.V. - Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems and Karlsruhe Police, as well as by the project sponsor TÜV Rheinland.
