Cooperative automated driving challenge on A270

The Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge will take place in Eindhoven on May 28th and 29th.

Organised by TNO, the international cooperative driving competition is part of European Commission-backed i-GAME, a research project in which TNO, Eindhoven University of Technology, Spain’s IDIADA, and Sweden’s Viktoria institute are collaborating on the development of cooperative and autonomous driving and the standardisation of vehicle communication systems.

Student teams from Sweden, Spain, France, Germany, Latvia, and the Netherlands will take part in the driving challenge on the A270 highway between Eindhoven and Helmond, facing a number of everyday traffic scenarios such as automatic merging and making room for emergency services vehicles.

The first demonstration day of the GCDC will be open to the public from 11am until 7pm on Saturday, May 28th. Experts from TNO, the TU/e, and the ANWB will be at the Automotive Campus in Helmond to increase public awareness of the benefits of cooperative automated driving.

Besides futuristic vehicle demonstrations, scheduled activities will include designing your own car, creating digital roadmaps, and performing experiments on a Technobus.

The second day will focus more on national and international mobility exports, students, and press.

A special programme put together for day two, also being held at the Automotive Campus from 13:30 until 17:30, includes connected and automated driving demos, futuristic electric and solar vehicles, live demos on the A270, and an awards ceremony for the winning teams.

This year’s event will be the second edition of the GCDC, and will also coincide with the last day of Dutch Technology Week.
