ITS 2020 demonstrations take place in a unique setting, with the Tagus river and the 25 de Abril Bridge as a background. Participants can benefit from a vast outdoor area that provides the right setting for the best experiences with the most innovative and up-to-date ITS solutions.
Demonstrations at the ITS European Congress
- Last Mile EV Automated Shuttle
Experience the intelligent system of CTAG’s Last Mile EV Automated Shuttle: a mobility solution that acknowledges and incorporates predefined speed limits and adjusts accordingly, while also performing secure ‘stop upon obstacle’ detection. This automated vehicle will follow a circular route near the Tagus River between two bus stops where people can get on and off the shuttle. Additionally, on this route, two traffic lights will send the shuttle information on their status and remaining time to change. With this knowledge, the shuttle is capable of accomplishing a smooth stop when necessary. Additionally, two traffic lights will send the shuttle live status updates and remaining change – time giving the shuttle the information needed to come to a smooth stop when necessary.
- 5G-MOBIX – HD Maps Use Case
Discover an automated vehicle that employs 5G core technological innovations. This demo focuses on the capacity of automated vehicles to detect changes between the road and the HD-Map used for driving (with the aid of signals emitted by the road-side infrastructure) and to send these changes to the ITS-Centre to centralize and broadcast this information. This technology can be used to roadmap the path so that approaching vehicles are aware of new and unidentified obstacles, such as road works.
This collaboration between Indra and the University of Madrid (INSIA research group) demonstrates how the deployment of C-ITS for autonomous vehicles and the communication between the infrastructure and the vehicle, can improve road safety in Europe. For this purpose, the test site will feature an incident, related to road works, that will be detected by the control center and create a warning in the software for incident management. The C-ITS module (HORUS) will take this information and send it to the Road Side Unit, that will broadcast the event. Finally, this information will be received by the autonomous vehicle, who will perform the recommended maneuver (to reduce speed, change lane, or both).
The Demonstrations’ site is located right in front of the venue, becoming the spot for a lively experience for all participants and providers. Demos can cover a wide range of technologies and solutions, in several different perspectives, from soft mode users to drivers, service providers or public authorities.
