The European project “AWARD” is dedicated to the automation of heavy vehicles in logistics operations. It is composed of a consortium of 29 European partners, of which CARA is a member, and is led by Easymile, a CARA member.
This large-scale project is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program to the tune of 20 million euros.
AWARD will develop and enable an autonomous transportation system in a wide range of real-life situations and scenarios. The project will develop an
autonomous driving system (Assistant Driver System – ADS) capable of dealing with adverse environmental conditions such as heavy rain, snowfall or fog.
CARA will be involved in 4 workpackages:
- Testing, methodology & evaluation
- Economic viability, definition of new business models and regulatory frameworks
