The research focuses on technologies of applied machine intelligence. Based on fundamental research new systems such as autonomous service robots, autonomous vehicles or assistance systems with cognitive capabilities are to be realized. The use of these so-called technical-cognitive systems takes place primarily in the context of highly automated, efficient and intermodal mobility; connected, automated production and logistics as well as the interactive support of the user in everyday situations.

Perception, situation assessment as well as decision making are the primarily addressed basics of machine intelligence. Methods for machine learning and probabilistic inference are thereby researched and applied for all components. The holistic use of neural methods in the areas of adaptive perception and behavioral decision making is being accounted for in the long term with the newly formed research focus of neurorobotics. Procedures for system evaluation and validation form an additional focus in the context of applied research. Autonomous vehicles like CoCar and CoCar-Zero, mobile robots such as the assistant robot Hollie, the walking robot Lauron or the inspection robot Cairo thereby form valuable integration and evaluation platforms for applied research. They are developed in close cooperation with the FZI and used for joint research and teaching.

At the 2023 International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems we unveiled our newest autonomous and connected research vehicle: CoCar NextGen.

Based on an Audi A6 platform, the vehicle is equipped with the latest sensor and computing technology to support our autonomous driving software. Its purpose is to facilitate research in connected and autonomous driving through real-world measurement and test drives.

The vehicle features nine cameras, twelve LiDAR sensors, three radar sensors and an enhanced GPS system. A high-performance server powers our autonomous driving software, complemented by multiple integrated GPUs to enhance our AI capabilities.
For communication with other vehicles and intelligent infrastructure, such as our Testfeld Autonomes Fahren in Karlsruhe, CoCar NextGen incorporates modern Vehicle-To-Everything (V2X) modules.

Additionally, we presented eight research papers at ITSC 2023, underscoring our commitment to advancing autonomous and connected driving systems.
If you too are interested in contributing to our research endeavors involving CoCar NextGen or our portfolio of autonomous connected vehicles and intelligent infrastructure, we invite you to reach out regarding Hiwi, Bachelor and Master Theses
