Automated research vehicle: Digitrans eVAN innovation lab
As part of the FFG’s 18th Mobility of the Future call for proposals, one of the most advanced research and test vehicles for automated driving in Austria was approved. The highly automated vehicle with open interfaces is to become a cross-border research platform and attract new collaborations and projects to Austria. Until now, it has been extremely difficult for players from the mobility industry in Austria to gain access to a roadworthy, automated test vehicle that is also openly usable and embedded in the Austrian transport system. This will now change with the test vehicle of DigiTrans GmbH with the catchy name “eVAN”. With this innovative research vehicle, it will now be easier in Austria to test concepts for automated freight as well as passenger transport in practical use cases. In this way, we want to promote and further advance the development and research of mobility system innovations in Austria.
The Digitrans eVAN innovation lab is funded by:
project objectives of the eVAN test vehicle
- Further development of AD and ADAS systems
- Implementation of use cases in passenger and freight transportation
- Provision of test data
- Communication between vehicles and infrastructure
- Research and further development of mobility system innovations
- Safe automated driving in roundabouts with fleet and mixed traffic
