May 16, 2017
The Research and Development project HarmonizeDD was officially launched with a kick-off meeting on May 11-12 in Dresden. To support connected vehicles, the project will develop an innovative cloud-based transport system. Thereby the focus will be on the interaction of conventional and future highly automated vehicles in mixed urban traffic as well as transport infrastructure in urban scenarios. The project is closely linked to the initiative »Synchronized Mobility 2023« and the results will be evaluated on the urban digital test field for autonomous driving in Dresden.
The two year project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) with resources from the »Funding guideline automated and connected driving on digital test fields in Germany« (Förderrichtlinie automatisiertes und vernetztes Fahren auf digitalen Testfeldern in Deutschland). Project partners include BMW AG (project management), Fraunhofer IVI (project coordination), Chemnitz University of Technology, Technische Universität Dresden, IAV GmbH, IVM gGmbH, MUGLER AG, Noritel GmbH, Preh Car Connect GmbH and Vodafone GmbH.
