VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and ITS Russia are to jointly develop intelligent transport systems (ITS).
The objective of Project CAVLane is to create new services, products and standards for border crossings. It is hoped businesses from all over Europe will join the partnership.
Project CAVLane is linked to a Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade initiative to create a roadmap for transport solutions that support automated driving – as well as to the Autonet-2 scientific and technical initiative.
“The goal is to promote automated driving and therefore to prepare for the advent of robotic cars with varying degrees of autonomy. VTT has a long history in developing autonomous car technologies and knowledge,” said Erja Turunen, executive VP, smart industry and energy systems, VTT (above right).
The project will involve the testing of ITS services for drivers before and after border crossings, such as queue cautions that are hoped to make traffic flow more smoothly at the Nuijamaa border crossing point between Finland and Russia, and standardized EU V2V warning messages.
