CAD Webinar Series (XI): The L3Pilot project – A Methodology for Piloting Automated Driving on European Roads
L3Pilot is a European research project co-funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 programme. The project is led by Volkswagen AG and has the participation of other 34 partners who are committed to paving the way for broad automation driving tests with series vehicles in real-life traffic.
The technologies being tested cover a wide range of driving situations, including parking, overtaking on highways, and driving through urban intersections. The functionality of the automated systems is exposed to the variable conditions of everyday traffic, with about 100 vehicles and 1,000 drivers taking their hands off the wheel so that they can perform secondary tasks.
These tests will provide valuable data for evaluating the technical aspects and overall impact on traffic and society. L3Pilot is particularly concerned with user’s perspectives on automated driving, studying user acceptance and their driving and travel behaviours. Any driving systems being introduced to market require a set of rules for system engineering and safety validation. L3Pilot partners will define these requirements for automated systems, captured in a Code of Practice for automated driving functions.
