Hi-Drive news: September events

Following a series of summer school events organised within the framework of previous research projects such as AdaptIVe and L3Pilot, the flagship EU Project for automated driving, Hi-Drive organises the first Summer School on ‘Driving towards the deployment of Higher Automation’, taking place on 06 and 07 September 2023, at the summer resort of Porto Heli in Greece.

During this two-day event, prominent speakers in the field will give highly relevant lectures on the latest developments and main challenges in the field of Automated Driving (AD). This first edition will focus on the thematic areas:

  • Learning-based AD perception and decision-making,
  • AD system-theoretic safety analysis,
  • Mixing real-world testing with simulation testing,
  • Collaborative driving testing, and
  • Human-CAV interaction testing.

On other news: The project has recently conducted a study on carsickness during automated driving with 44 participants on public roads in Wolfsburg. You can find the results here: https://www.hi-drive.eu/news/carsickness/.

Hi-Drive advances the European state-of-the-art of automated driving from SAE L3 ‘Conditional Automation’ further up towards ‘High Automation’ by demonstrating in large-scale trials the robustness and reliability of connected and automated driving (CAD) functions. This project is co-funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101006664.
