The yearly MATLAB Expo will take place in Munich on June 27th 2017. This year ANDATA will talk about possibilities for an effective development and safeguarding of advanced driver assistance systems and automated driving with the help of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence based on MATLAB.

ANDATA at the SafetyWeek 2017

The SafetyWeek in Aschaffenburg in May is one of the primary events and information hubs for news and updates in the field of automotive safety in Germany. The upcoming introduction of automated and advanced assisted driving is expected to deliver a further major step in the direction to Vision Zero.

ANDATA presents the importance and the motivation for open test fields with accordant methods for the validation and safeguarding of learning, cooperative, and connected systems in automated and assisted driving. It is illustrated by the exemplary example of WienZWA, the intended (inter-)urban test field for automated driving in and around Vienna.

Project start for the autonomous driving lab Wien ZWA - Zukunft wird automatisiert ("future will come automated")

Austrian Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology co-funds our consortium's setting up a European integrated automated driving test facility. This decision follows a competitive national call for proposals with a peer-reviewed selection process administered by FFG (Austrian funding agency for applied-technology projects). Our convincing mission has been to enable fast forward learning on "safe mobility for all" by means of using (semi)-autonomous cars on one of the world's best equipped real-world mixed-traffic infrastructure (Vienna metropolitan area, Austria). Rapid learning for us involves the ever new dynamic interaction between pedestrians, two-wheelers and (semi)-autonomous vehicles. This dynamically re-invents on a daily basis the inclusion and radically improved anticipation skills for all land transport (pedestrians, two-wheelers, urban/sub-urban/overland transport, motorway/urban streets, public transport, multi-modal transport modes, dynamic exploratory adaptation behaviour). We all learn every day – and at an increasing speed. This is why our acronym in German would translate into "Future will come automated to the square". The consortium bundles forces of Austria's most experienced organisations in innovative future mobility, traffic sensors, vehicle sensors, simulation algorithms, open innovation test environments, safe transport, smart mobility, smart safety, traffic management of the future, traffic light controllers and infrastructure-to-car-technologies: Andata (Hallein/Vienna), HiTec (Vienna), Smart Safety Solutions – Kuratorium für Verkehrssicherheit (Vienna) and Swarco-Futurit (Vienna). Anybody can come, test and learn fast. High-level international visibility is granted from Austria's government hosting key events during its chair of the European Council in 2018 as well as TRA 2018 in Vienna, Austria.

ANDATA at SIMVEC 2016 in Baden-Baden

ANDATA together with the partner company Wunderwerk presents the results from the "Simulation of dynamic loads for fuel and oil tanks with standard industrial robots". Beside the primary task of tank testing also the fundaments for new approaches to low-cost-driving- and flight simulators have been defined within the given contribution.

Audi launches "Paula", an automated guided vehicle for modular assembly

(C) Audi AG

At the TechDay Smart Factory an automated guided vehicle (AGV), called "Paula", has been presented by Audi. The Audi AGV is equipped with a free navigation unit, which allows the automated, autonomous execution of freely configurable missions. The transfer of function and software development procedures from the fields of automotive safety and assisted/automated driving resulted in an extremely efficient and effective in-house development. Also worth mentioning and trend-setting is the layout and constitution for self organizing swarm intelligence. Further details can be found here in Encounter Smart Factory 2017 at page 28 and following: "Paula on Tour".
