On the Innovation-Relay in Amsterdam the first public test with the DAVI has become a success. Minister of infrastructure and environment Schulz van Haegen joined the DAVI researches in a test drive on the A10 where a overtaking maneuver was performed.
Unique in this demonstration is that it is on cooperative driving, where several cars communicate. This means that the cars are not only equipped with techniques so it can drive automatically but also techniques to communicate with other vehicles and infrastructure. “If cars communicate and brake and accelerate cooperative a shockwave is prevented and the traffic runs more smooth”, stated Minister Schulz.
