Augmented CCAM

Augmenting and Evaluating the Physical and Digital Infrastructure for deployment of corporate, connected and automated vehicles

AUGMENTED CCAM aims to understand, harmonise and evaluate in an augmented manner adapted and novel support solutions of Physical, Digital and Communication (PDI) infrastructure, to advance its readiness for large scale deployment of connected, cooperative and automated mobility (CCAM) solutions for all. The project will elaborate, extend and harmonise PDI classification and support levels mapping co-determined PDI priority requirements and adaptations. Based on this and by deploying an open sharing technology agnostic service operational framework and architecture for PDI enabled CCAM, addressing all CCAM actors via multi-cooperation models, the project will develop 11 PDI support solutions (aiming at  technology level readiness (TLR) 6-7) that will apply and evaluate in different configurations in 7 test sites across 3 European Countries (France, Latvia, Spain), encompassing a vast spectrum of physical (living labs, closed areas, open traffic highway, urban and peri-urban/rural environments) and virtual (digital twins, automated vehicles & driving simulators) test beds. Artificial  Intelligence and Big Data advanced techniques and crowdsourced HD maps will leverage the whole transport system and its users’ situational awareness, prediction and actuation.

The different test activities findings, supported by micro and macroscopic traffic simulations, will allow the assessment of different PDI support on functional safety of the whole transport infrastructure, on traffic safety and efficiency, driving behaviour, environmental footprint, service reliability, trust & security, considering the socioeconomic benefits and costs of all actors, and the issue of roadmap and recommendations, proposing risk-aversion decision making tools and methodologies for policy making and CCAM - ready infrastructure investments. AUGMENTED CCAM, coordinated by Forum of European National Highway Research Laboratories (FEHRL), consists of a multi-stakeholder Consortium of 26 Partners from 12 European countries and one Associated partner from Switzerland.

In this project PTV focuses on studying the impact of novel solutions for PDI at the network level.

  • New PDI Classification & Support Scheme for CCAM
  • Technology agnostic „We share what we see“ Service Operational framework and Architecture
  • New/optmised PDI support solutions for CCAM services
  • Augmented iterative implementation and test plan to feed impact assessment
