Exciting things are happening on the A9 highway near Munich-Garching. Our Providentia team is installing the sensor technology for the infrastructure that will enable real-time monitoring of the road situation. In a documentary dedicated to the topic of autonomous driving and artificial intelligence that will be broadcast on Thursday, May 31, 2018 at 5:30 pm, SAT1 Bayern will show how the fortiss researchers are developing the necessary software environment.

The foundation for the road monitoring system is the interaction of state-of-the-art mobile networks, distributed sensors, cameras and algorithms. The digital infrastructure is designed to provide drivers of conventional and autonomously-connected vehicles a view of the road situation ahead, in addition to traffic prognoses.  

You can watch a small clip of the documentary on our YouTube channel.

Further information regarding Providentia is available here.
