CoEXist, allowing roads to be shared between conventional and automated vehicles

Concept: The key idea is to make roads “AV-ready” (automated vehicles ready). For that, tools are developed in order to model traffic with AVs. These models are tested in four European cities.

EU contribution: EUR 3.47 Million (100%)

Timeframe: May 2017 – April 2020
