The scope of work is the joint development of a sweeper demonstrator that drives autonomously and automatically cleans the road space. This technology carrier will be developed, and functionality tested.
High performance sensor, intelligence, machine operation and control solutions developed by the Parties shall be integrated into a standard sweeper and shall enable comprehensive environment recognition and situation-dependent autonomous decision-making in the event of unexpected disruptions and obstacles and shall ensure safe and reliable operation.
The sweeper demonstrator shall be equipped with driveby-wire technology, which enables the technology carrier to perform independent evasive manoeuvres, and with suitable technology for allowing autonomous cleaning. In addition, an integrated, high-performance safety system shall prevent unauthorized access to the machine.
