Projects and Partners of the FZI Living Lab Automotive

  • Tech Center a-drive: The Tech Center a-drive is a network of the research partners Ulm University, the FZI Research Center for Information Technology and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) as well as the industrial partner Daimler AG.
  • RobustSENSE: The aim of the EU project RobustSENSE is to develop robust and reliable methods for environment sensing and situation prediction for autonomous vehicles.
  • OmniSteer: In the project OmniSteer, research is carried out on behavioural decision making depending on the situation for omnidirectional chassis systems.
  • CoCar: With the instrumented test vehicle CoCar, the FZI aims at providing more driving comfort, safety and security, and energy efficiency.
  • ReTivU - Reales Testen in virtueller Umgebung (real testing in virtual environments): Through the linking of virtual and real test drives, critical traffic scenarios can be tested and analysed reproducibly.
  • Energieeffizientes Fahren EFA 2014 (energy-efficient driving): Fifteen partners of the German automotive industry, several research institutions as well as the Saxon state capital Dresden have formed a consortium in order to enhance the range of electric vehicles through intelligent, anticipatory energy management in the next two years.
  • AUTOPLES: The project AUTOPLES encompasses automated parking and loading of electric vehicle systems.
  • S 500 Intelligent Drive: In the project S 500 Intelligent Drive, a Mercedes-Benz S-Class was equipped with the corresponding technology in order to autonomously follow the track that Bertha Benz had chosen for her historical first long-distance drive 125 years ago. The project was carried out under the guidance of Daimler AG within the framework of a research partnership with the FZI Research Center for Information Technology and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).
