The MAVEN project aims to provide solutions for managing automated vehicles in an urban environment (with signalised intersections and mixed traffic). It will develop algorithms for organising the flow of infrastructure-assisted automated vehicles, and structuring the negotiation processes between vehicles and the infrastructure. Platooning is an evident example of a technology in this domain. The MAVEN approach will substantially contribute to increasing traffic efficiency, improving utilisation of infrastructure capacity, and reducing emission. MAVEN will build a prototype system that will be used both for field tests and for extensive modelling for impact assessment. Furthermore, the project will contribute to the development of enabling technologies, such as telecommunication standards and high-precision maps. A roadmap for the introduction of road transport automation will be developed, to support road authorities in understanding potential future changes in their role and in the tasks of traffic management. A white paper on "management of automated vehicles in a smart city environment" will position the MAVEN results in the broader perspective of transport in smart cities, and embed these with the principles and technologies for smart cities, as well as service delivery.

Video: green wave for automated vehicles

At the stand on the ITS Europe congress, the green wave system of MAVEN was also demonstrated with a video. Thanks to the integration with speed and lane advice, platoons can be formed efficiently upstream of the first intersection. This is a major advantage compared to traditional green wave systems, where typically over 90% of

Final results for policy makers

During the course of the MAVEN project, stakeholder involvement was always among our top priorities. With several workshops we discussed with road authorities and other external stakeholders what was most important to them in the context of automated driving. With this input and the knowledge resulting from the technical work, a transition roadmap was made.

Demo video released

As already announced we were working on editing the video material we collected when filming the demo setup we used at the ITS Europe congress last June. In the video below you will see the demo ride of the Dynniq vehicle, which was available on the days with an open road. Since this is a
