The research activities of the VID department in the area of driver assistance systems and autonomous driving covers the following areas:
The artificial intelligence "SPARC" for fully automatic driving plans maneuvers that simultaneously optimize safety, comfort, traffic rules and energy efficiency. The red clouds represent the predicted locations of other objects; The green arrow describes the optimal driving maneuver to avoid a rear-end collision.
