COMPOSE develops and evaluates collision mitigation and vulnerable road user protection systems for trucks and cars. COMPOSE focuses on pre-crash measures to be taken during the last second before a collision. Various application measures are used: mitigation through autonomous braking / brake assist, and also utilization of protective structural actuators. Various innovative sensor data fusion methods will be pursued to achieve the high degree of sensor reliability, which is mandatory for such applications. (BMW rather than TU Munich is involved in this project.
