MadeInGermany is a modified Volkswagen Passat Variant 3c. Latest LIDAR/ RADAR sensor technology, as well as cameras, help to overview its surrounding area (see sketch below for details). A special GPS system gives precise information about the position. The car is also equipped with Drive-by-Wire technology, meaning that engine, brakes, steering and other actuating elements can be accessed directly via the CAN-BUS. The car’s intelligence is based on software, which is implemented on computing systems located in the trunk compartment. Most of the required electromechanical modifications and integration of the sensors were performed by the Volkswagen Research Garage, so that we could focus on our expertise – the software. The “Operating System for intelligent cars” is one of the key research topics of the AutoNOMOS team. The AutoNOMOS project is funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research in the framework of the German High-Tech Strategy.
