Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, and Lane Changing Assist, can be tested on the Automated Driving Lab.
For this purpose, references are generated that are tracked by using appropriate controllers for longitudinal and lateral vehicle dynamics.
Moreover, cooperation between vehicles via "Vehicle-to-Vehicle" or "Vehicle-to-Infrastructure" communication can increase the efficiency of many automated driving maneuvers.
The focus at the Institute of Automation and Control lies hence on the reference generation and tracking in automated and cooperative driving.
Different open projects are available for projects (Bachelor/Master) and theses (Bachelor/Master).
Environments used for the Testbed:
Simulation: MATLAB / Simulink, optionally coupled with "SUMO" (Simulation of Urban Mobility),
Experiments: MATLAB / Simulink with BeagleBone Support and MATLAB RealTime Toolbox
Useful skills: MATLAB/Simulink, control theory basics
