SAFE-UP

SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES
INTEGRATED TRANSPORT
Proactive SAFEty systems and tools for a constantly UPgrading road environment.

Road safety is high priority for future innovations for connected automated vehicles. The EU-funded SAFE-UP project focuses on future safety-critical scenarios, safety technologies and safety assessment methodologies.

Future safety-critical scenarios will be designed and tested in a traffic simulation platform, providing the basis for four demos of new safety technologies for active and passive systems. 

Project Objective

SAFE-UP aims to proactively address the upcoming safety challenges presented by disruptive technology like Connected Automated Vehicles (CAVs) by developing innovative technologies, testing and assessment methods.

SAFE-UP is based on 3 key pillars:
i) Future safety-critical scenarios
ii) New safety technologies 
iii) New safety assessment methods 

Future safety-critical scenarios will be designed and tested in a traffic simulation platform, providing the basis for four demos of new safety technologies for active and passive systems: 

The passive safety system of Demo 1 will include restraint and occupant monitoring technologies for new seating positions. Three active safety system prototypes (all on-vehicle, one including on-user and infrastructure) will be developed.

Demo 2 will enhance the interaction between vehicles and VRUs under bad weather conditions.

 Demo 3 will integrate advanced intervention functions to avoid critical events.

Demo 4 will consist of a safety solution based on C-ITS to enable timely warning provisions.

 The SAFE-UP consortium consists of key players in mobility across the entire value chain: advanced OEMs, leading suppliers, industry players and academia. By covering pedestrians, cyclists and powered two-wheelers in urban areas through active safety systems, and by covering cars in non-urban areas through passive safety technologies, the project will impact about two thirds of all road fatalities.

SAFE-UP will also develop targeted education and training schemes for fostering the implementation of automated driving functions, while also focusing on raising awareness of future road safety challenges.

 

The Role of Aimsun

The SAFE-UP simulation framework involves integrating models developed by different partners that account for different kinds of road users such as autonomous vehicles, cyclists, or pedestrians, and different weather conditions, which change the visibility and the braking distance.

The Aimsun team is working to integrate the different models into Aimsun Next simulation software resulting in a user-friendly simulation platform, where the different models interact seamlessly.  This is achieved at a fraction of what it would cost to develop an ad-hoc simulation platform and with all the additional features that come as a standard with Aimsun Next that enable more simulation flexibility and better visualisation of results.
