State of Practice: Control Tower for Autonomous Vehicles
Volvo Group’s one of the newest business area is Volvo Autonomous Solutions (VAS). The focus of the organization is to develop, maintain and own Volvo Group’s full-stack solutions, including both onboard and offboard parts, for autonomous transportations systems.
Multiple automated vehicles operating in an autonomous design domain need to be maintained and operated via an automated control tower. The emphasis of this thesis is to develop a simplified autonomous control tower proof-of-concept development. The primary scope, but not limited to, is to address the transport vehicles (level-4 autonomy) operating in a confined area. The thesis includes an investigation (both literature review and interview) of the existing technology in this domain. From the findings, a simplified concept control tower will be designed, implemented and finally evaluated to find the impact of new implementation compared to a traditional one.
