The scientific objectives of interactIVe focused on the design, development, and evaluation of integrated ADAS applications. Five major scientific objectives have been defined. All of them serveed the purpose to cover more scenarios, to enhance system intelligence, and to avoid full collision:
The focus was on joint steering and braking actuations. Two specific areas were investigated: continuous driving support and emergency interventions. Collision avoidance have thus become more effective.
Three areas were addressed:
ADAS concepts for reducing accident severity have been further developed. Specific attention was given to vehicle architecture in the low-medium segment of passenger cars, and on cost effective sensors in combination with relevant accident scenarios.
One main target was to integrate the environment sensing information as a part of the perception layer, including the inertial sensors, digital maps, and vehicle-to-vehicle as well as vehicle-to-infrastructure communication.
interactIVe continued the work of PReVENT and other European projects by using structured methods for the evaluation of safety functions. A modular evaluation framework was being defined to co-ordinate all testing.
