Control Hub is a vehicle mission control platform (VMP) for planning and operating automated vehicle operations. All the data from vehicle and infrastructure sensors comes together in Control Hub making traffic monitoring, route management and predictions about bottlenecks possible.
The solution enables an overall driving and parking strategy, supervision of all vehicles and objects, and specific missions for each automated vehicle. Control Hub optimizes your business in time, cost and processes.
Control Hub works like an air traffic control for various industrial or automotive use cases, such as automated factory or valet parking for autonomous cars, or automated depot or industrial plants for the monitoring and control of autonomous tractor units or shuttle traffic. The solution has unique utilization capabilities in various industries and processes.
How does Control Hub work?
Control Hub offers a digital representation of the environment and vehicles. It is achieved by creating a HD map including functional areas, such as driveway, pedestrian-lane, different kind of parking spots, as well as by supervising position, speed and maneuvers of all vehicles on the area.
Secondly, Control Hub includes an operations center for mission management for each individual vehicle, optimized driving strategies and patterns, flexible interaction and changes, as well as handling of emergency cases.
