GCDC 2016

At the end of May, six students from Halmstad University competed in The Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge 2016 and won. The students turned an ordinary car into one which is self-driving and has the ability to talk to other vehicles in traffic.

GCDC (The Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge) 2016 was settled May 28–29 on the dual carriageway between Helmond and Eindhoven in the Netherlands. In all, ten teams participated, five of them from Sweden.

GCDC is a part of the i-Game-project, a research project about cooperative and autonomous cars, supported by the EU-commission. Behind i-Game stands the Dutch research organisation TNO, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Spanish test environment IDIADA and the research institute Viktoria Swedish ICT.
