GUIADE- Automatic guidance for public transport vehicles through multimodal perception in order to improve efficiency

National R&D Plan 2008-2011

The purpose of the GUIADE project is to achieve automation in the positioning and guidance of public transport vehicles, with the aim of optimising efficiency based on the information supplied from the ITS infrastructure.


The sensoring of infrastructure involves not only the installation of advanced sensors and the processing of the information they provide, but also the installation of communication systems which allow the establishment of a link to the ADAS systems of the public transport vehicles close to the area of influence, in order to give them advance notice of possible incidents detected from the ITS infrastructure.

For their part, the details obtained from the transport vehicle by way of its ADAS systems allow the generation of relevant information on the state of the local environment. The information obtained in this manner can be useful for the infrastructure in terms of creating a much more solid knowledge base, in turn leading to greater efficiency.


The project counts on the support of the Development Ministry and the Regional Development Fund (FEDER).
