Another VEDECOM demonstration of self-driving vehicles at the Intelligent Vehicle Symposium

27 mai 2019

As part of the 30th Intelligent Vehicle Symposium (IV2019) on 12 June 2019, the VEDECOM Institute, together with IFSTTAR and Mines ParisTech, is coordinating more than 20 demonstrations which will take place on the Versailles Satory test tracks, located right next to the mobiLAB. Leading French and international industrial and academic research centres will present their work to some 500 expected attendees. This will also be an opportunity for VEDECOM to unveil some key results regarding self-driving vehicles, which have been obtained through the European AutoMate project that is now coming to an end.

IV2019: a major global symposium on issues relating to smart vehicle

IV2019 is a leading annual conference sponsored by the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society (ITSS). It covers all topics related to the development of intelligent vehicles: advanced driver assistance systems, artificial intelligence, connectivity, navigation and precise localisation systems, extended perception, as well as human factors… The 30th edition of the conference will be hosted in France from 9 to 12 June 2019. Some 500 scientists, engineers and technicians will gather to share and discuss the latest theoretical and technological advances in the field. The first part of the event, which includes conferences and workshops, will be held from 9 to 11 June at the Palais des Congrès in Issy-les-Moulineaux. The demonstration component, which will bring the event to a close on June 12, will take place in Versailles-Satory, right next to the mobiLAB, which will itself host a poster session and a few vehicles on display. More than 20 dynamic and static demonstrations will take place on the test tracks to showcase the latest breakthroughs in the field of self-driving vehicles.

Driver and self-driving vehicle: a winning combination thanks to mutual observation

The VEDECOM Institute, which is coordinating the second part of the event with IFSTTAR and the Ecole des Mines-ParisTech, will itself be giving a demonstration. During this event, the Institute will unveil the main results achieved as part of the European AutoMate project. This project, which brings together 10 European public and private actors, aims to test a driving automation system that is both cooperative and communicative, based on mutual communication and observation between the driver and the vehicle. The aim is to have vehicle and driver work reliably as a team, able to operate an autonomous and shared driving in order to improve traffic safety. This includes the development of driver assistance systems capable of interpreting driver behaviour and offering automated driving functions according to circumstances.

Two researchers from the Self-Driving Vehicle team will also speak at the event. Guillaume Bresson will present the SLAM visual system, a very precise localisation system that uses Google Street View images: a new technology, at a reduced cost! Nouhed Naidja will present the results of the feasibility study on the integration of self-driving vehicles in urban areas, carried out by simulation as part of the Coexist project.
