Germany's leading universities in field of automated driving have joined forces with selected specialists from industry in the nationally funded (Federal Ministry for Research and Education - BMBF) UNICARagil project to rethink automated vehicles and their architecture. Based on the latest research on connected and automated driving, disruptive modular architectures in hardware and software for automated vehicle concepts are developed.
A scalable and modular vehicle concept consisting of the driving platform and add-on modules builds the basis for the fully automated and driverless vehicle concepts, which can be adapted to a wide range of applications in passenger transport or logistics flexibly. The focus of the conducted research lies on the vehicles’ functional architecture, which is connected to the cloud, the road infrastructure and to a sensor-equipped unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), the so-called Info Bee. The development of generic sensor modules for environment detection, flexibly expandable and updatable software architecture and innovative dynamics modules that allow completely new forms of movement in road traffic mark additional focus areas of the project.
