e-Instein

e-Instein is a modified Mitsubishi i-MiEV. The car is equipped with the PARAVAN SPACE DRIVE¬ģ Drive-by-Wire technology, meaning that engine, brakes, steering and other actuating elements can be accessed. Being an electric vehicle, this car enables new challenges for our work group, like indoor navigation and localization. Compared to MadeInGermany, a rather minimal sensor setup was chosen. Nonetheless latest LIDAR and RADAR technology, as well as cameras, enable a detailed perception of the environment. Although the focus is on localization with cameras and LIDAR, a high accuracy GPS system is installed for reference data. The car’s intelligence is based on software, which is implemented on computing systems located in the trunk compartment.
