343). Another advantage of this architecture design is the directly resulting vehicle trajectory, since the curvature and therefore the maximum safe vehicle velocity is a direct outcome of the arbitration process. As an example, a successful implementation of this architecture approach was conducted by the German team “Caroline” in the DARPA urban challenge. The autonomous vehicle concept used the DAMN arbitration concept and combined it with an interrupt function to be able to also react to road intersections, roadblocks and other events (Rauskolb et al.
