Automated Driving

The following applications arise in the field of automated driving:

  • The node control helps automated, assisted and traditional vehicles and traffic participants for an optimal, safe and efficient passage of an intersection.
  • The line control in combination with the vehicle control enables the use of optimal control strategies for an improved traffic flow, for example by platooning.
  • The net control helps automated and assisted traffic participants for the choice of the best routes and traffic modes.
  • The vehicle control delivers a set of fundamental functions in automated driving. Contrary to purely autonomous driving, the vehicles are integrated into a broad context of traffic. This is necessary when the benefits of automated driving with respect to traffic efficiency should really be brought into effect.
