Technologies enabling the digital operation of vehicles, especially of a distributed and autonomous kind, create infinite possibilities for everyone to significantly improve mobility and transport management while substantively reducing the operational costs. Digital mobility data such as traffic information, vehicle and cargo tracking, environmental conditions, quantification data of vehicles, users, goods or infrastructure assets is assessable today for both public and private stakeholders along the value chain fostering the fast change in technologies, business models and the society.
A user-centric combination of computer engineering, mathematics, cryptography and behavioural economics drives VIRTUAL VEHICLE’s vision of mobility and transportation solutions for the future. VIRTUAL VEHICLE researches on tools, methods and migration strategies by applying the right balance of core technologies to ensure the safest, most reliable and comfortable, de-carbonized and multimodal digital operation of smart vehicles and intelligent infrastructure. The investigated approaches and implementation strategies provide the required speed in R&D but also accelerate the market-uptake for future digital operation concepts.
VIRTUAL VEHICLE offers different cooperation models tailored to the specific needs of its leading international industry and research partners to run R&D projects.
