Logistikum at University of Applied Sciences Steyr is coordinating an important next step for automated and cross-linked driving in urban environment. The project team focuses on the following overarching research question: How can safety in intersection situations be increased for all road users through cooperation and communication (C-ITS)?Automated driving aims at preventing accidents and reducing collision severity. Systems like the "autonomous emergency brake" or "collision warning" contribute to increasing vehicle safety. With respect to „Vulnerable Road Users" (VRUs), such as pedestrians, cyclists, motorcycle riders, there is still high potential to reduce accidents and avoid dead people through automated vehicles with improved sensors, vehicle communication and collaboration abilities.
