AD-EYE is a testbed for Automated Driving & ITS on KTH campus.
AD-EYE is a testbed for Automated Driving (AD) and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). It is anchored at the Division of Mechatronics and Embedded Control Systems at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. This sub-project funded by the WASP industry bridge call is in conjunction with the Center for Trustworthy Edge Computing Systems (TECoSA), and industrial partners Ericsson and ZenseAct and aims to transform the KTH campus into an innovation arena for AD and ITS.
AD and ITS are very large and complex tasks, requiring a multidisciplinary approach. The goal of AD-EYE is to aid researchers to overcome hurdles in making the transition from lower to mid/high TRL levels, especially challenging for research in safety critical fields such as AD and ITS. Usual hurdles are, for example: regulatory requirements, lack of open data, approvals of Transportstyrelsen, or that multidisciplinary collaboration is required.
The AD-EYE testbed emphasizes architecture openness through modular, standardized interfaces, open-source base functionality and data. The modular reference implementation can be selectively used or improved by the individual researcher in order for them to keep their focus on their research interests, while still using the rest of AD-EYE testbed implementation and resources. The resources available are of different types such as the ability to drive on public roads on KTH campus, access to sensors, compute hardware, workstations, open data (e.g. www.adeye.se/open-kth), proprietary data (e.g. from Stockholm city) and communication (5G, WiFi, V2X).
In conclusion, AD-EYE aims to simplify the process of testing new WASP developments in realistic conditions on public roads easier (with a reference implementation) and safer (with an approved safety case and process).
