At Ulm University of Applied Sciences (THU), we are undertaking a variety of research projects concerning driver assistance systems and autonomous driving. In these projects, we are developing sensors (especially radar sensors), as well as collecting vehicle data and using this data to analyze driving behavior.
Together with other university partners and Ulm University, the ZAFH (Center for Applied Research at Universities) MikroSens
at the THU is developing radar sensors for various applications (including intelligent mobility) and is transferring this technology in particular to SMEs, which are involved via an industrial advisory committee.
When it comes to camera-based driver assistance systems, we are investigating surround-view and camera-monitor systems. Camera-monitor systems enable the conventional, legally-specified wing mirror to be replaced by a digital camera system as per ISO 16505 and UN R.46. Activities at THU include architecture concepts, measurement technology as well as the circuit design necessary for signal processing. The knowledge transfer also includes involvement in the work of international standardization bodies in this area.
