MoVeOver addresses one of the most challenging use cases for cooperative connected and automated vehicles (CCAVs), which is the management of road intersections towards a long-term horizon where cars will move without a stop at the intersections. The objective of the project is to design and validate coordination protocols, exploiting wireless communications and taking into account the possible presence of non-connected objects. The activity will include the implementation of a Proof of Concept.

MoVeOver is part of Spoke 5 – Industrial and Digital Transition Networks

The first part of the project has been dedicated to the study of the latest proposals for intersection management, to an in-depth investigation of the relevant ETSI standards, and to the analysis of the most recent wireless communication technologies for V2X. In parallel, initial discussions were carried out towards the definition of a common platform for the validation of the designed solutions. Specific activities have focused on some aspects at various layers of the protocol stack. Such activities included the creation of datasets of synthetic sensor data traces (video, lidar, radar, ...) in some target intersection scenarios, the investigation and early implementation of the vulnerable road user awareness (VA) and cooperative perception (CP) services, and the study of relevant features of the recent IEEE 802.11bd and 5G NR-V2X wireless technologies. The partners have also participated to standardization activities on V2X, with particular reference to ETSI and the Car2Car-CC.
Main outcomes: • Review of the literature on coordinated manoeuvres and intersection management; • Review of the wireless technologies for connected vehicles. Side outcomes: • Dataset extension of sensory data from simulated intersection scenarios for possible training set for autonomous and cooperative driving algorithms; • Simulation of scenarios with pedestrians and vehicles exchanging ETSI compliant messages; • New algorithm for the setting of the number of retransmissions in IEEE 802.11bd (WiFi solution for direct communications in connected vehicles); • Simulations of specific features of 5G NR-V2X sidelink (cellular solution for direct communications in connected vehicles) and of co-channel coexistence of the cellular and WiFi based solutions.

Collaboration proposals:
MoVeOver is continuously looking for young researchers interested in contributing to project activities  such as: cooperative protocols for intersection management, V2X technologies, validation of connected cars with hardware in the loop implementation.
