Fully automated driving is one major enabler to master the Grand Societal Challenges of safe, clean and efficient mobility, and autonomous driving will affect society and most disruptively change the automotive industry as we know it today. Consequently it will also greatly impact the semiconductor industry and open new market opportunities, since semiconductors play an indispensable role as enablers for automated vehicles.
PRYSTINE will realize Fail-operational Urban Surround perceptION (FUSION) which is based on robust Radar and LiDAR sensor fusion and control functions in order to enable safe automated driving in urban and rural environments.
Furthermore, PRYSTINE will strengthen and extend traditional core competencies of the European industry, research organizations, and universities in smart mobility and in particular in the electronic component and systems and cyber-physical systems domain.
PRYSTINE’s well-balanced, value chain oriented consortium, is composed of 60 project partners from 14 different European and non-European countries, including leading car manufacturers, Tier-1 suppliers, engineering and semiconductor suppliers as well as supply chain partners, technology integrators, universities and research institutes. The project will also have significant impact on smart regions. High tech jobs in the area of innovation toward automated driving which are expressed core competencess of the participating countries such as Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands.
