At the final presentation of the EU research project HAVEit (Highly Automated Vehicles for Intelligent Transport), Volkswagen Group Research presented the Temporary Auto Pilot (TAP) developed by Volkswagen. The Temporary Auto Pilot (TAP) bundles semi-automatic functions, functions monitored by the driver along with other driver assistance systems, such as ACC adaptive cruise control and the Lane Assist lane-keeping system, into one comprehensive function. TAP is intended to prevent accidents due to driving errors by an inattentive, distracted driver. In the semi-automatic driving mode - referred to as Pilot Mode, for short, TAP maintains a safe distance to the vehicle ahead, drives at a speed selected by the driver, reduces this speed as necessary before a bend, and maintains the vehicle's central position with respect to lane markers. The system also observes overtaking rules and speed limits. Stop and start driving manoeuvres in traffic jams are also automated. With TAP, it is possible to drive at speeds of up to 130 kph on motorways or similar roads. Drivers must still continually focus their attention on the road, so that they can intervene in safety-critical situations at any time.
