FAAR Industry, as an expert of embedded control command systems, and autonomous driving technologies, joined the partners list of VEDECOM, at the beginning of 2016, as associated donor.
VEDECOM is an institute created in response of the French Government’s plans for investment for the future mobility. The institute is dedicated to performe in the sectors of electric, connected and autonomous vehicles, infrastructures and shared mobility services.
One of the VEDECOM projects was to develop several autonomous cars running an open road. FAAR Industry has taken part in this project, which was presented at the ITS World Congress of Bordeaux, France in October 2016.
Through this partnership, FAAR Industry renews its engagement to the development of the transport technologies of the future.
FAAR Industry is pleased to present you its new “X i.cars” demonstration at the ITS world congress in Bordeaux from 5 to 9 of October 2015. We have worked on this project with the UTBM ( Belfort-Montbeliard university of technology).
We worked on the autonomous mode, so that the car can drive itself on the road with other autonomous cars in a unique experience in early beginning of French personal rapid transit network.
“Three vehicles, equipped by our team, run on an 8-shaped circuit. No traffic lights neither stop signs will be used. The vehicles approaching the intersection inform each other about the possible conflicting situation, exchange information and find together a solution through a roadside unit. Hence, all vehicles keep safe distances not only with the precedent vehicle in the same lane but also with vehicles coming from the conflicting lane” explain the UTBM project manager.
Tomorrow your personal car will also be able to give information to other autonomous cars about accident on the way, traffic jams, fuel level, different points of interest knowing accurately their position and synchronizing their speed together.
Traffic congestion is one of the major problems of this century. Today, infrastructure managers as well as public authorities support the huge effort to alleviate the traffic. Tomorrow, your personal vehicle will contribute to improve the way of sharing the infrastructure. Indeed, the automotive industry has promised the autonomous vehicle for 2020.
This autonomous « X i.cars » will be demonstrated at the ITS congress in Bordeaux (oct 5th – 11th 2015), to make you try it and appreciate the comfort of your car driving itself in autonomous mode. We will be present during the whole Congress on the booth C22, so you can register for a free trial right now. Feel free to contact us.
