- Published: Sunday, 18 December 2016 23:19
On the 30th of November 2016, the iCOMPOSE project closed the final project period successfully. Again, the review meeting took place in Lommel (Belgium) at Flanders MAKE facilities on the 13th of December. All active partners (Virtual Vehicle, University of Surrey, SKODA Auto, Flanders Make, Hutchinson, AVL List, Infineon Technologies, and Fraunhofer IVI) presented their contributions as well as the next steps towards exploitation and dissemination of all innovations developed throughout the project.
After a very heavy agenda packed with technical details in the morning, a short test drive around the Flanders Make building was scheduled showcasing the semi-autonomous driving of the Range Rover Evoque demonstrator vehicle featuring the novel control and processing algorithms implemented on the novel multi-core platform (iCEMCCU).
After a short transfer to Kristalpark, the Skoda Rapid demonstrator vehicle was presented demonstrating the modern HMI, as well as the 7 speed gear box.
Finally, the Range Rover Evoque demonstrated the progress made with respect to the vehicle dynamics controllers developed throughout Work Package 5 by University of Surrey together with Flanders Make in a series of tests:
* Obstacle avoidance with and without the vehicle slip control
* Obstacle avoidance with and without the novel hitch angle control
* Swaying test with and without the hitch angle control
After a short closed discussion, the Project Officer announced the results and congratulated all participants to the successful project.
Many thanks to all participants!
