The newly established project "DENSE - aDverse wEather eNvironmental Sensing systEm" officially kicked off with a meeting of the project partners in Stockholm, Sweden on 14 and 15 June 2016.
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, in which accident risks are highest, they malfunction or even fail. DENSE was selected for funding through ECSEL Joint Undertaking as part of the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020.
The kick-off meeting featured a thorough discussion on all activities in the project and the distribution of responsibilities among partners, leading to a project roadmap for the upcoming months. Based on this discussion, the consortium developed a project roadmap for the upcoming months.
