Human-Centered Cyber Physical Systems

1. Relevante Forschungsaktivität

The Chair of Mechatronics works within the scope of the FSP on scientific contributions, which are based on methods for the recording of vehicle dynamics and consumption data in vehicle fleets in real use and on the application of advanced methods of "Machine Learning" and Simulation technology for their evaluation. These include:

  • Recognition and modeling of driver behavior in selected traffic situations [1] [2].

  • Methods for simulating vehicles, drivers and environmental traffic in real time.

  • M-M interactions in autonomous and semi-autonomous driving including the handover situation from automated state back to the vehicle driver.

  • Simulation of pedestrians and drivers / vehicles in real driving situations and use of methods for intentional prediction.

  • Detection of the use of customer carriages in vehicle fleets by mobile data loggers [3] [4, 5].

  • Hybrid simulation of traffic flow with more than 10,000 vehicles.
