Automated and Connected Driving in the Dresden Test Bed
October 9, 2019, Dresden Airport
After extensive research and development work, automated driving is becoming an everyday image on our streets. On the 9th of October, the Saxon energy agency SAENA invited major collaborates such as REMAS, HarmonizeDD, SYNCAR and AULA to join them in the Dresden airport conference room.
In his keynote speech, Fraunhofer IVI Department Head Dr. Torsten Gründel gave an overview on the »Synchrone Mobilität 2023« research initiative and the Dresden Test Bed. In addition, he answered the journalist questions.
Furthermore, the event demonstrated the outcome of automated driving on the Dresden Airport corridor, so that the experts could admire the newest technology. The accompanying exhibition enabled an in-depth insight of the extensive test planning and the monitoring of the experimental vehicles.
The Fraunhofer IVI used the opportunity to present a newly developed automated charging system, which can be used in private households. In addition, the AULA project improved its developed technology for automatized recharging. The new version allows the consumer to install the recharging station in his or her very own garage and uses the identical interface in the vehicles’ floor (see picture).
