Autonomous Land Vehicles

Sensor systems for capturing the environment of a vehicle in 3D enable driver-independent obstacle detection and routing, thus constituting an important element in assistance systems for vehicles ranging from rail vehicles (trains, trams) to road vehicles (cars, trucks) and vehicles used in the construction and agricultural industries (excavators, tractors etc.).

The overriding goal here is to improve safety by supporting the driver while also improving efficiency, especially in the area of mobile machines for industry, construction and agriculture. The technologies available also support the implementation of fully autonomous vehicles, as illustrated by the projects described below.
