AI-based electronic solutions can make autonomous driving saferDate of Release: Dec. 04, 2019
Fully automated and autonomous vehicles should be able to respond appropriately in every situation. Together with partners in the “KI-FLEX” project, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is developing a platform that uses Artificial Intelligence methods to help measure vehicle position and determine vehicle environment in the future. Fraunhofer FOKUS is part of the project.
5G Automotive Association tests C-V2X technologies in BerlinDate of Release: May 24, 2019
At the live demonstration of the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA), smart mobility experts of Fraunhofer FOKUS presented two use cases of C-V2X technology, which included warning before emergency braking and construction sites, and tele-operated driving. For the latter demo, a system has been developed that enables a teleoperator to switch to automated control in the event of an emergency, thus enabling unforeseen obstacles to be mastered reliably.
