Interactions between autonomous vehicles and infrastructures for mobility services in low-density areas
The connected autonomous vehicles are changing the world of the automobile. They could provide a safe, ecological and shared alternative to the exclusive use of its personal vehicle. Major progress has taken place in recent years. Many experiments are carried out in urban areas. However, these different initiatives do not take into account the specificities of the low-density areas where transport solutions are scarcer.
The TORNADO project aims to develop in a low-density environment:
- A vehicle-infrastructure system from prototypes of existing autonomous vehicles
- Through two use cases: service in “meeting area” and drawdown on “Open Road”
- With short field validation periods (real-scale and real-world)
