Driverless driving - challenges and solutions

  • "In order to further increase the level of automation in driving tasks, safe and comprehensive concepts and systems are needed within the vehicles and in connection with the outside world."

    Peter Weissmüller
    Project Manager Embedded Systems (EDAG Engineering)

  • "In some ways, the autonomous vehicle is like real life: Not only the "external values/sensors" are of great importance. The "inner values" also play a vital role: You need high-performance EE architecture."

    Gerhard Becker
    Head of Department Vehicle Engineering Electronics (EDAG Engineering)

    "Without progress in the field of explainable AI, artificial intelligence will not be fully applicable in vehicles."

    Nathalie Klingler

Die Transformation der Mobilität im 21. Jahrhundert - vom Vehikel zum smarten
und vernetzten System im Netzwerk des IOT

Termin: 07. Oktober 2021, 14 - 15 Uhr

zur Aufzeichnung

Die Entwicklung des Automobils nahm ursprünglich als Konkurrenz zur Pferdekutsche im 19. Jahrhundert ihren Lauf. Im 20. Jahrhundert entwickelte sich das Automobil zu einer massentauglichen, komfortablen und hoch individuellen Transportmöglichkeit.

Heute fokussieren wir uns in der Entwicklung auf elektrische Antriebe, (teil-)autonome Fahrfunktionen und der Vernetzung des Fahrzeugs mit weiteren Verkehrsteilnehmern. Softwarefeatures, Userinterfaces und Maschine-zu-Maschine-Interaktion (wie z.B. Micropayments) sind in der Fahrzeugentwicklung wichtiger denn je – anstelle einer Pferdekutsche mit e-Antrieb entsteht ein „Computer on wheels“.

Folgenden Leitfragen aus dem Bereich „Computer on wheels“ / digitale Transformation der Mobilität sollen diskutiert und beantwortet werden:

  • Welche technologischen Erfolge werden wir in den kommenden fünf Jahren erzielen?
  • Vor welchen technischen / gesellschaftlichen Herausforderungen stehen wir gerade?
  • Welche neuen Geschäftsfelder / Zusammenarbeitsmodelle entstehen derzeit?
  • Wie verändert sich die Sichtweise / Anforderungen der Kunden durch die rasche Transformation der Mobilität im 21. Jahrhundert?

    • Digitale Transformation der Mobilitätsindustrie durch die Entwicklung und den Betrieb von digitalen Software-Services
    • Host der YouTube-Liveshow „Kaffee mit Süssemilch“
    • Mitorganisator mehrerer Hackathon Events


    "Future Mobility bedeutet eine deutlich vernetztere Zusammenarbeit der unterschiedlichen Player als bisher. Gemeinsam mit EDAG-Kolleg/innen sowie einem Vertreter der Distributed Ledger Technologie IOTA werde ich als Moderator des Live-Events für Sie den aktuellen Status Quo und die Auswirkungen von computer on wheels auf OEMs, Städte und Bürger/innen kritisch zu hinterfragen und ein gemeinsames Zukunftsbild zu diskutieren."


    • Smart City-Datenplattformen
    • Alternative Mobilitätsangebote – intermodal und kundenzentriert
    • Gemeinsame, interdisziplinäre Mobilitätsentwicklung – der Bürger im Mittelpunkt


    "Computer on Wheels? Aus meiner Sicht ist es nicht zielführend, wenn in Zukunft die Autos im urbanen Raum autonom gesteuert im Stau stehen."


    • Computer Vision und Natural Language Processing im Automotive
    • Entwicklung der KI-Komponente des EDAG CityBot
    • Softwareentwicklerin im Bereich der KI 


    "KI gibt es schon lange. Aber durch die Ressourcen, die sich uns heute bieten, können wir sie immer umfänglicher einsetzen. Der nächste große Schritt wird nun sein, sie bis ins Detail zu verstehen, um sie auch in sicherheitskritischen Situationen einsetzen zu können."


    • Software-Entwicklung für automatisierte Fahrfunktionen
    • Software-Optimierung und verteiltes Rechnen
    • Portfoliomanagement EDAG für den Bereich ADAS


    "Das Lernen durch Scheitern steht dem automatisierten Fahren leider nicht zur Verfügung. Konzepte müssen erprobt werden - die Frage ist wie."


    • Zusammenarbeit von Framework-Entwicklung und Industrie-Teams 
    • Distributed Ledger-Technologien 
    • Maschinen <-> Maschinen-Interaktion


    "Dank IOTA wird mein Auto in Zukunft seine Versicherung und Betriebskosten selbst verdienen und bezahlen."
