I-AT - Interregional Automated Transport

The essential part of the project “I-AT” was the collaboration within a consortium of SME together with research institutions, large companies and public institutions throughout the German-Dutch border region in order to accelerate know-how transfer and the product innovations in the border region and by doing so to stimulate the regional economy. This consortium guaranteed a well-structured project partner organization and also offers the possibility for other SMEs to participate in this eu-regional network and to gain profit as a result. To be precise, goal was the (further) development of technical innovations and solutions in the fields of automation processes, ICT and telecommunications, artificial intelligence as well as measuring- and sensor technology for the automotive and logistics industry sector in order to broaden own know-how and technological competences with respect to autonomous driving and truck platooning. The development of prototypes and conducting test series in the region therefore has been crucial.

Testing with techniques for automated driving took place at e.g. Airport Weeze (between P2 and arrival/departure hall), across the border (Aldenhoven), within a transport corridor (truck platooning): To realize this the (differences in) legislation and an open know-how development were important preconditions. The technology of the automated vehicles is made available for further development activities. The vehicles themselves have been or will be transferred to educational institutions in NL and NRW.
