Addressing challenges toward the deployment of higher automation.

Improving intelligent vehicle technologies

EU-funded Hi-Drive will push automated driving further towards high automation. The goal is to make driving automation robust and reliable by taking intelligent vehicle technologies to conditions and scenarios neither extensively tested nor demonstrated earlier in European and overseas traffic. Hi-Drive addresses a number of key challenges which are currently hindering the progress of developments in vehicle automation. The project’s ambition is to considerably extend the operational design domain from the present situation, which frequently demands interventions from the human driver. With these aims, Hi-Drive associates a consortium of 41 European partners covering the main impact areas which affect users and the transport system, and enhance societal benefits. The project work includes outreach activities on business innovation and standardization.
