Augmenting and Evaluating the Physical and Digital Infrastructure for CCAM deployment to analyse the effects of the different PDI on the functional safety of the transport infrastructure on traffic safety and efficiency, driving behaviour, environmental footprint, service reliability, trust & security, considering the socioeconomic benefits and costs of all actors, and the issue of roadmap and recommendations, proposing risk-aversion decision making tools and methodologies for policy making and CCAM - ready infrastructure investments.
AUGMENTED CCAM aims to understand, harmonise and evaluate in an augmented manner adapted and novel support solutions of Physical, Digital and Communication (PDI) infrastructure, to advance its readiness for large scale deployment of CCAM solutions for all.
The project will elaborate, extend and harmonise PDI classification and support levels mapping co-determined PDI priority requirements and adaptations. Based on this and by deploying an open sharing technology agnostic service operational framework and architecture for PDI enabled CCAM, addressing all CCAM actors via multi-cooperation models, the project will develop 11 PDI support solutions (aiming at TLR 6-7) that will apply and evaluate in different configurations in seven (7) test sites across three (3) European Countries (France, Latvia, Spain), encompassing a vast spectrum of physical (living labs, closed areas, open traffic highway, urban and peri urban/rural environments) and virtual (DT, AV & driving simulators) test beds.
The results planned to achieve in this project are as follows:
To harmonise PDI classification for CCAM & Use Cases.
To develop Service Operational framework & novel PDI support concepts for CCAM.
To undertake Field & virtual operation and tests.
To consolidate the tests results across the different planned iterations, assessment of the impacts of the proposed PDI enhancements and novelties on CCAV ODD and CCAM operation across traffic safety, driving behaviour, traffic efficiency, environment, service reliability, trust and security and cost efficiency on the basis of an impact assessment framework.
To ensure an appropriate and transparent transfer and cross-fertilisation of knowledge and results liaising with European and worldwide networks through its project beneficiaries.
To address the need of authorities and stakeholders for enhanced support, knowledge, and tools to enable informed and structured decision-making on CCAM and PDI deployment, developing in ‘Guidelines for CCAM-ready infrastructure planning’.
Building up commercialisation capabilities preparing the exploitation route of the project, with exploitation plans developed for each Key Exploitable Result.
Ensuring transferability and exploitation of results by authorities and stakeholders, through a capacity building strategy.
