Introduction and Objectives#
Safety, driving comfort and energy consumption have gained primary importance within the research and development of highly automated driving. One of SYNCAR’s objective is to broaden these perspectives. Therefore, innovative solutions for anticipatory driving will be developed, taking other road users and light signal systems into account. This results in a novel approach on traffic optimization by providing specific driving recommendations (maneuver recommendations) for vehicles or vehicle types. To achieve this, new methods for the processing of environmental information from vehicle sensors need to be developed. In a next step, this information can be used for operation and visualization in the vehicle as well as to provide them on infrastructural side. The new methods and features will be prototypically implemented and demonstrated – also in real traffic.
