This project aims to validate a per-industrialisation approach towards a cooperative driving system between user, vehicle and infrastructure to suggest an intelligent, secure and calm route, for sustainable mobility.

The system will provide:

  • A complementary dynamic infrastructure and traffic management tool for the provision of vehicle data and guidance to drivers.
  • More reliable, rapid and user-localised services: regulatory speed limits, advisory speed limits for traffic control, local or surrounding area alerts (weather, tailbacks, roadworks, lane closures, accidents ...).

Once completed, the Co-Drive project will make it possible to:

  • List the relevant (vehicle and/or infrastructure) data to be processed along with the different envisaged users
  • Provide a dynamic basis for regulatory and recommended speeds
  • Develop a progressive communication gateway for the collection and dissemination of data between vehicles and the infrastructure
  • create modular software components for processing vehicle data to interface with traffic management software with the aim of developing a "Support system for intelligent road management" software package
  • Install on the infrastructure managers's traffic management PC a vehicle data management system for transmitting localised, appropriate instructions
  • Define the technical specifications to ensure the system is robust (communication, information management, associated components)
  • Supply the first test methods for cooperative control and command systems
  • Create a full demonstration system (vehicle/infrastructure) on the Versailles / Satory test site, including a scalable embedded open communication box, a fully equipped electric vehicle, intelligent infrastructure components, a motorway simulation model (vehicles, traffic, incidents, accidents, ...)
  • Stipulate the rules governing retrofitted equipment and associated testing norms
  • study the obstacles and solutions related to user, social and legal acceptability of the system
