German Federal Minister Alexander Dobrindt has approved further €22.2 million for the Research program on automation and networking in road traffic that has received €47 million since December 2016. The money will benefit thirteen new projects, most of them on digital test fields. One of the projects will be receiving nearly half of the total amount, and is researching the interplay of several driver assistance functions under real-world conditions.
“With the aid grants, we are launching innovative research projects on automated and networked driving on the road. We use our world-wide unique digital test fields and provide around €100 million in funding. My goal is that Germany is the leading provider of automated and networked vehicles, becoming the lead market and the first country to start the regular operation of this technology,” Federal Minister Alexander Dobrindt explained.Green Car Congress
