Chronos is about making the first step to create a test platform for automation and ICT at AstaZero. The platform will be open for test and validation (certification) of coming autonomous functionality. It will be possible to make validation of vehicle functionality through controlled exposure to potentially dangerous scenarios possible. The ICT test/research will include cyber security and reliability, high efficiency, high safety and security and allow flexibility towards customers and suppliers, industry and academia. The unique cutting edge test facility will make project/experiments possible and shorten time to market. The aim is to offer tests at the proving ground as a service! For SAFER, it is important to develop a core method to help partners to proceed in the area.

Partners: AstaZero, VCC, AB Volvo, Autoliv, Ericsson, Sentient+, Berge, Fengco, Vinga, Lab, HiQ, Chalmers, SP
