The groundbreaking HAVEit proposal aims at the long-term vision of highly automated driving. Within this proposal important intermediate steps will be developed, validated and demonstrated. These intermediate results on the one hand offer high potential for exploitation within 3-5 years after HAVEit and on the other hand form the ideal basis to integrate further next generation ADAS (highly automated functionalities) by adding software modules.HAVEit will significantly contribute to higher traffic safety and efficiency for both passenger cars and trucks, thereby strongly promoting safe and intelligent mobility of both people and goods. The strong HAVEit safety and efficiency impact will be generated by three measures:(i) By optimizing the task repartition between driver and co-driving system (ADAS) in the joint system. As 95% of all accidents are caused by driver mistakes, it is very important to ensure the driver is in the loop when required to make sure he or she is able to react properly in a potentially critical situation. Within HAVEit a radically new approach will be developed: Instead of just switching off an ADAS system in case of an impending potentially critical situation, a step-by-step-approach will be used to transfer the driving task back from the automated system to the driver. (ii) By further developing and implementing the failure tolerant, safe vehicle architecture including advanced redundancy management (from the SPARC predecessor project) to suit the needs of highly automated vehicle applications and to arrive at higher system availability and reliability.(iii) By developing and validating next generation ADAS directed towards higher level of automation compared to the current state of the art: HAVEit integrates 7 cutting edge highly automated vehicle applications for both passenger cars and trucks, e.g. automated assistance in roadworks, automated queue assistance, temporary autopilot, active green driving.
