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.
The pilot site in Helmond offers a state of the art infrastructure with all major intersections equipped with cooperative roadside units. Furthermore, the adaptive control algorithm ImFlow traffic control provides the opportunity to implement many different policies.

This pilot site offers the latest with respect to infrastructure detection as part of the Application Platform for Intelligent Mobility (AIM) test site. Stereo video detection combined with radar and hemispherical dome camera’s enable the infrastructure to enhance the safety of automated driving. The demo site Tostmannplatz in Braunschweig has four approaches which are controlledRead More
Simulations are essential for impact assessment of scaling up the MAVEN solutions. Therefore, in addition to simulations of the pilot sites, there are dedicated simulation networks of Prague, Helmond and Braunschweig. Each network has their own specific challenge and thus provides a good environment to evaluate MAVEN use cases such as platoon orchestration (e.g. initialisation,Read More
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 aRead More
After several months of hard work dedicated to impact assessment, the MAVEN project is proudly presenting its final results. With a total CO2 emission reduction of up to 12% and a 34% higher throughput, the expectations were exceeded by far! These numbers are a direct result of putting all systems from the technical work packagesRead More
On the 6th of June the final event of MAVEN took place at the ITS Europe congress in Helmond/Eindhoven, The Netherlands. During the congress we’ve had 3 hours of total demonstration time on the closed road. Visitors had the opportunity to take a ride in the fully automated Hyundai vehicle and experience the MAVEN useRead More
