Milestones for V2X communications reached and presented at ETSI ITS workshop

MAVEN has developed V2X communication schemes and message sets for infrastructure-assisted automated driving. For the cooperative infrastructure, an I2V Lane Change Advisory service and a dedicated profiling of the SPaT (Signal Phase and Time) and MAP (topology) for lane-specific GLOSA were developed. For the cooperative automated vehicles, extensions of standard CAM (Cooperative Awareness Message) messages

Vehicle milestones for communication and platooning reached

MAVEN has completed vehicle automation developments, which allow the reception of Signal Phase and Timing (SPaT) messages from the infrastructure. The vehicle automation takes the desired speed sent by the Road Side Unit (RSU) for the upcoming traffic light into account when planning the correct behavior. As the MAVEN vehicle is longitudinally and laterally automated
