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.

Impact of MAVEN exceeds expectations!

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 packages

Final event photo impression

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 use
