WP1: Overview, Analysis and Exploitation of VACS

Vehicle Automation and Communication Systems (VACS) are systems that undertake different vehicle functions at various levels of automation, which, enhanced by communication features enabling varying levels of cooperation among vehicles (V2V) and/or vehicles and the infrastructure (V2I), aim at assisting and easing the driving task.

For the needs of the TRAMAN21 project, VACS are initially classified into the following three general categories:
