Besides general issues such as geometry, the ASOA, and the planning of the mid-term event, the planning and integration of the platforms was a central topic of the workshop. A small and a large platform arrived in Stuttgart in early December. Together, the UNICARagil team analyzed the current status of the platform. Astonished faces could be seen here, as the team only knew the concepts on paper. With Christmas approaching, it is a successful end of year for the entire team. UNICARagil is concerned with automated driving and new mobility concepts. The implementation of new vehicle concepts is the focus of the project.
More than 100 research assistants are involved in the project consortium. The project phase is scheduled to run for four years. During this time, the aim is to develop modular architectures from hardware and software components for automated and driverless vehicle concepts, including new dynamic modules and sensor modules. Apart from the University of Stuttgart, the following universities are involved as project partners: the RWTH Aachen University, the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Technical University of Braunschweig, Ulm University, the University of Passau, and the Technical University of Darmstadt.
