How to build a self-driving car?
Exploratory Teaching Space Anwendungslabor at Institute for Automotive Engineering
Automated driving is currently a major driver of the automotive industry and has become a major research topic. This Exploratory Teaching Space Laboratory provides students the possibility to develop and test an automated driving function step by step. The lab provides an insight into the prototypical development of a self-driving car.
Interested students get to know and understand main components for automated driving. The aim is to implement all algorithms and finally test and evaluate a self-driving car on the ika test track.
The lab is designed to provide an overview on background knowledge on all relevant topics in form of a bi-weekly lecture. This will allow the students to understand the content and basic approaches in order to apply these to their own work. Based on the lecture the students can then work on their personal implementations.
In the week afterwards a workshop then provides the possibility to exchange findings, get support and present results. Finally best practice solutions are presented.
The kick-off and introduction to the lab will be conducted on April 25th 2017 at ika. Afterwards a weekly lecture and/or workshop of 1.5 h duration will take place during summer semester 2017.
The lab contains the following modules:
- State of the art sensor technologies for automated driving
- Hands-on experience and try-out of different sensors
- Introduction to environment modelling
- Fusion of attributes of different sensors
- Behavior generation
- Path planning
- Trajectory planning
- Trajectory tracking
- Vehicle modelling
- Vehicle actuators/interfaces
- Functional safety
- Integration of student’s software modules into ika’s automated vehicle
- Experience of ika’s traffic-jam assist
