The i-GAME project raised the level for automated driving by combining existing advanced driver assistance systems with car-to-car communication (V2V). The 3-year FP7 program, with roots in the "Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge" (GCDC) in 2011, allowed industry and research partners to collaborate on both a national and international level. It created an international arena for the development and implementation of cooperative traffic systems.
Road traffic continues to face significant challenges regarding congestion, traffic safety and emissions. The combination of vehicle automation (making it self-driving) and vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication may provide a solution to some of these issues. To enable these improvements, vehicle-to-vehicle cooperation is only possible if we can agree on what we want to communicate with each other and when we do it. That is precisely the aim of the i-GAME: to prove a basis for cooperative automated driving in an international context.
In addition i-GAME supports a multi-vendor approach where vehicles from different manufacturers can cooperate based on a minimum set of common rules such as safety regulations and communication protocols.
The GCDC has also published a video.
