New Hardware for Automotive Test Bed

The valuable and long term support of the company KS Engineers enabled the setup of a test bed for automotive applications at the Institute of Automation and Control. The test bed is already in action in the course of various student projects studying and developing, for example, modern wheel slip controllers. The picture shows Robert Bauer (from KS Engineers) and Markus Reichhartinger (from the institute) celebrating a first operation of the test bed with the new hardware sponsored by KS Engineers.


Due to the uncertain COVID-situation the next Retzhof-seminar will be held in 2022 instead of 2021. Current topics about Control Engineering will be discussed in lectures.
