Project DENSE kicked off in Stockholm
The newly established project "DENSE – aDverse wEather eNvironmental Sensing systEm", which was selected for funding through ECSEL Joint Undertaking as part of the Horizon2020 program of the EU, officially kicked off with partners' meeting on June 14 and 15 in Stockholm, Sweden.
The project aims to develop and validate an all weather sensor suite for driver assistance and automated driving. Current driver assistance systems are not all-weather capable. They offer comfort and safety in sound environmental conditions. However, in adverse weather conditions, where the accident risks are highest, they malfunction or even fail.
The kickoff involved a thorough discussion of all the activities of the project, as well as the distribution of responsibilities among partners. Discussions focused on laying the project plan for the upcoming months.
The project partners are confident that the objectives of DENSE – defining requirements, specifying, developing and validating a fused sensor suite – will be achieved and expect the core activities for prototyping a novel all-weather sensor system to be finished within the estimated milestone plan.
