This video shows the internal and external view of what happened during the PROUD2013 driverless car test in downtown Parma, Italy, on July 12, 2013. It also displays the internal status of the vehicle plus some vehicle data (speed, steering angle, and some perception results like pedestrian detection, roundabout merging alert, freeway merging alert, traffic light sensing,…).

The PROUD event was organized by VisLab together with University of Parma – Dip. Ingegneria dell’Informazione and DISS (www.diss-it.org)
Details: the red/green LEDs show that the vehicle is free to move along its route when the ‘Forward Driving’ LED is green. Whenever a sensing system detects the need for a stop/slow down, the ‘Forward Driving’ LED is turned into red and the reason is shown with the appropriate LED. The situation awareness engine decides which sensing system is to be used according to the situation and map. Therefore the LEDs represent the final result of the “situation awareness + perception result” processing, while the ‘Vehicle Speed’ and the ‘Steering Angle’ are the actual values dumped during the test.
Minor synchronization glitches are due to the capturing of a 20min clip with different cameras (a GoPro on the vehicle, a GoPro on the following vehicle, an HD camera onboard the helicopter, and the set of sync data from the vehicle).
