The I-Cave program consists of seven project groups called workpackages.
Each workpackage works closely together with some of the program partners.

The uniqueness of i-CAVE is it advances all enabling technologies that are required for
safe, efficient, and effective automated and cooperative driving with dual-mode
vehicles, while also addressing important human factor aspects. The central point is
project 7 (Linving lab/demonstrator). This is the joint real-world demonstrator platform which has a crucial role in the utilization of i-CAVE’s research.
i-CAVE also takes a unique pragmatic approach, by considering the cooperative and automated dual-mode
principle. With this we recognize that the ultimate goal is full automation (SAE level 5) but that many societal goals can already be achieved with lower levels of automation. Our integrated research lines therefore specially consider vehicle automation technology that can be introduced step-by-step and that allows for seamlessly switching between human-controlled driving and cooperative automated driving, i.e. dual-mode driving, when possible and when wished for.
