The German Pegasus project will organise its annual symposium on 9 November 2017 at the RWTH Aachen’s Institute for Automotive Engineering (IKA). Under the title “How safe is safe enough?”, the event will explore safety-related features in automated driving. There will also be demonstrations of the project’s on-going work and a panel discussion with high-level experts. More information will be made available here.
PEGASUS delivers the standards for automated driving. With the PEGASUS joint project, promoted by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi), key gaps in the field of testing will be concluded by the middle of 2019, up to the release of the highly-automated driving functions. PEGASUS has brought together automotive companies, suppliers, small and medium-sized companies as well as research facilities. PEGASUS will develop, until 2019, a generally accepted and standardized procedure, for the testing and approval of automated driving functions. The 17 project partners from the science and industry fields define hereby a state-of-the-art technology for the safeguarding of highly-automated driving and demonstrate the development in a practical manner, using the example application of the highway chauffeur, which takes over the highly-automated driving on the highway.
