The Fraunhofer Application Center »Connected Mobility and Infrastructure« focuses on current and future topics of automated and cooperative driving. By means of wayside protection systems and a high-performance car-2-infrastructure communication, safety risks of partially and fully automated traffic flows should be reduced and overall traffic become more efficient.
Diverse competences in the fields of sensor technology, communication and artificial intelligence are combined, fostering synergies with the Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI) as well as the local industry, and aiming for close cooperation with the city of Ingolstadt and its partners.
Existing research infrastructures at the THI and the Fraunhofer IVI as well as the planned urban test field for intelligent mobility IN2LAB in Ingolstadt will serve as a basis for the application center.
Plans for the coming years include the development of further technology fields in the areas of autonomous systems, digitalization of transport as well as vehicle and road safety.
