AdaptIVe Kick-off meeting
The AdaptIVe project started with a kick-off meeting on the MobileLifeCampus in Wolfsburg on January 30th to 31st. Aria Etemad, coordinator of the project, welcomed the representatives of the 29 partners. Subsequently, Thomas Ruchatz, Head of Driver Assistance and Integrated Safety at VW, gave an overview of on-going initiatives regarding automated driving. Simon Godwin, director of EUCAR, addressed the audience via video assuring the partners of the full support given to AdaptIVe.
On the second day the EU funded project ARTRAC aiming to develop an active pedestrian protection system was introduced. Afterwards, in parallel subproject sessions automation levels and use cases of AdaptIVe were defined. The kick-off event provided the basis for a close cooperation between partners for a three and a half year’s project.
