Automation capable Local Dynamic Map (LDM) released
The MAVEN project has achieved its first milestone in development of the next generation Intelligent Transport Systems. Automation features have been added to the infrastructure Local Dynamic Map (LDM). This will facilitate more information sharing between the roadside and vehicles, enabling new use cases related to traffic safety and efficiency. The vehicles will share intended turn direction, automation sensor data and their platooning and speed preferences. The infrastructure will use this information to optimize traffic control plans further and send enhanced Green Light Optimal Speed Advice. For safety use cases the sensor sharing increases the possibilities to give early warnings and lowers the chance of missing critical situations.
