C-TheDifference: next steps in C-ITS in urban areas
28 March 2017 - Nuno Rodrigues - Business Development Manager at Dynniq - International Mobility Experts Day
C-TheDifference is a 2-year pilot project funded by DG MOVE with the aim to gain insight into the effects of urban C-ITS services. In Bordeaux, the focus is on the roll out of more services and use of 3G/4G, while in Helmond the focus is on the use of ITS G5 and expansion of the fleet of professional users. In this session we will also share the developments and lessons learned from preceding projects such as Freilot and Compass4D.
I-GAME project and Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge: proven basis for cooperative automated driving in an international context

Getting inspired by ADAS: from owner to user
29 March 2017 - Ilse Harms - Connecting Mobility - Involving the (professional) user
These days commercials for new cars boast various Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). This suggests that these systems are becoming increasingly mainstream. But is this really the case? Do people actually know with which ADAS their car is equipped? And if they do, do people also use these ADAS? To find out, we questioned over 2,000 experienced drivers and compared their answers with their actual vehicle specs. Furthermore, we unraveled why systems are not used at all – even if cars are equipped with them – and bring a user perspective to the various brand names that are given to similar ADAS functionalities. Insights in this chain from ADAS owner to ADAS user are crucial to understand the conditions for a breakthrough of ADAS.
Vehicle control: Cooperative and/or autonomous driving
29 March 2017 - Professor Henk Nijmeijer – Eindhoven University of Technology - Involving the (professional) user
A review on some recent developments regarding cooperative and autonomous driving are given. Particularly, focus will be placed on control aspects in longitudinal driving – often rephrased as cooperative adaptive cruise control- and cooperative steering, and most important the combination of both. Some of the outcomes of the Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge 2016 will be highlighted.
