Safe and efficient traffic in the Ingolstadt Innovation Lab
January 24, 2024 | Research Project IN2Lab successfully completed
Within IN2Lab, a project with a duration of 3.5 years, the »First Mile« test field was established at Lake Auwaldsee in Ingolstadt, and a security system for automated driving functions was developed. The final event on January 24 in Ingolstadt clearly highlighted that the test field has enriched the mobility region with an open, urban development, and demonstration platform for 5G-based mobility applications.
Under the coordination of THI, project partners Fraunhofer IVI (with its application center in Ingolstadt), Audi, Blickfeld, and Continental developed essential components of the security system. These include infrastructure-side sensors for environmental perception, Car2X communication for the interconnection of vehicles and infrastructure, as well as a Mission Control backend for monitoring and control. Fraunhofer IVI, in collaboration with THI, is a key partner in the test field and has significantly contributed to its conception, architecture, and specification. Additionally, the institute supports the expansion of the test field with further Roadside Units in the 5GoIng project, as well as its evolution into an open innovation lab.
IN2Lab was funded by the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy as part of the Bayern Digital II initiative.
