Automated Shuttle Service for Universitair Ziekenhuis Brussel Report on the Technological Maturity

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportResearch

Abstract

This document reports on the technological evaluation of the autonomous shuttle
deployed in the ASSUZB living lab. This technological evaluation is based on a
broad state-of-the art analysis of the base components of an autonomous vehicle
system, a scan of the vehicle technology currently on the market or in pilot testing
phase, and an analysis of the real-world behavior of the autonomous shuttle deployed
in the project. It also explores some synergies with the electrified aspect of the
autonomous shuttle by modelling its kinematic behavior and evaluates the data needs
for such living lab projects. The ASSUZB project was not a technology focused
project but centered around the living lab and socio-economic aspects. It did not
contain technological developments as part of its research, which would require
considerable resources and close cooperation with the vehicle manufacturer as an
integral project partner. Instead, the autonomous shuttle, though still in constant
development by its manufacturer, is placed in the market as a commercial product
and introduced in the project as an operational lease. However, the technological
oriented activities in the project must allow to assess the maturity of this technology
in real-world conditions and build up some tools to help select and construct future
living labs for autonomous vehicles.
