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
