Further Information

Automated, cooperative vehicles have to make decisions in road traffic in a highly dynamic, interacting and incompletely perceptible environment. Previous attempts are usually limited to situation assessment from an egocentric perspective, without taking cooperation aspects into account, or interactions between other road users.


The goal of this thesis is the extension of an existing cooperative multi-agent planning algorithm by the aspect of safety. In this context, methods such as RSS, which guarantee a one-sided safety while driving, are to be used. RSS can perform both the risk assessment (classification of safe/dangerous situations) and the risk mitigation (generation of the proper response). Both aspects should be integrated within the planning algorithm to ensure the generation of safe actions.
