Digital infrastructure for automated vehicles
On the 22 of June Connected and Automated Driving (CAD) partner CARTRE organised a Special Interest Session on “Digital infrastructure for automated vehicles” at the 12th ITS European Congress in Strasbourg.
Jaap Vreeswijk of MAP Traffic Management (The Netherlands), Ahmed Nasr of HERE (Belgium), BMW’s Armin Graeter (Germany) and Jun Shibata of the Digital Road Map Association (Japan) brought multiple perspectives on the topic together.
The discussion focused on implementation aspects and technological issues, including the presentation of several use cases. Digital Infrastructure indicates the static and dynamic digital representation of the physical world with which the automated vehicle will interact to operate. It is essential to support the deployment of highly automated vehicles. The activities related to Digital Infrastructure address several aspects such as for instance standardized representations, content types, guarantee quality, collection and minimum requirements.
