Workshop "Cooperative Interacting Vehicles"

The CIV Workshop will take place at the IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium in Paris on Sunday, June 9th, 2019.

Keywords: Automated Cooperative Interaction; Cooperative Perception; Cooperative Prediction and Motion Planning; Ergonomics for Cooperative Interacting Vehicles



Technical progress in Automated Driving and Connected Vehicles enables Automated Cooperative Interaction of traffic participants. This includes the exchange of information and/or the negotiation of driving plans via V2X communications between automated vehicles, with infrastructure, with conventionally driven vehicles and with vulnerable road users. This workshop elaborates methods to enhance the horizon of perception and the information about future evolution of the surrounding traffic scene for connected vehicles. Furthermore, the negotiation of coordinated driving trajectories is addressed. Finally, concepts for the interaction between human and machine in Cooperative Interacting Vehicles are elaborated. The technical areas to be discussed include, but are not limited to the following:

Cooperative Perception
Consideration and trust of communicated information from sensors of other automobiles and infrastructure; latencies, spatio-temporal uncertainties

Situation Prediction
Cooperative anticipation of the movement of vulnerable road users and other vehicles; methods that allow others to anticipate one's own behavior.

Cooperative Maneuver and Trajectory Planning
Strategies for cooperative trajectory planning; implicit or explicit negotiations; common quality criteria; impact of non-cooperative road users on cooperative traffic

Data and Information Base
Cooperative knowledge aggregation that may guide tactical behavior decisions

System Ergonomics
Interaction between drivers and passengers and vulnerable road users with automated vehicles



The workshop will include overviews from experts in the field for the above topics coming from industry and academia. The workshop includes a poster session on ongoing research. Participants will have an excellent opportunity to discuss with experts in the field.

The workshop explicitly invites contributions. Please, see call for papers at each individual workshop. The workshop papers are reviewed under the same procedure as the IEEE IV Symposium papers and they will also be published in the proceedings together with the conference papers. For paper submission format and procedure, follow the IV Symposium instructions at
