A selection process for next generation cooperative driver assistance systems
Field operational testing of first-generation Vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communication systems (Car-2-X, C2X) has recently commenced in projects such as DRIVE C2X or Safety Pilot. Following the evaluation, an introduction of such systems into the market is expected, thus leading research focus to shift to novel assistance systems enabled by C2X. In this paper we describe the properties of cooperative driver assistance (CoDAS) systems - an augmentation of existing and novel ADAS functions with C2X. Furthermore we describe a categorization approach suited to CoDAS. Two such functions - cooperative ACC and platooning - are detailed as examples and a selection process for CoDAS functions with regard to technical, economic and social factors is explained with regard to them.
