From sensors to driving functions - develop your own car
The Model-based Systems Engineering field of competence at fortiss, together with the chair for Software & Systems Engineering at Technical University Munich, is putting together a bachelor’s/master’s practical course titled “From sensors to driving functions – develop your own car”.
Each semester, teams of 4 to 5 students work on a vehicle platooning scenario, using model-based engineering to teach cyber physical systems theory and application. Platooning refers to an autonomous driving function that makes it possible for automobiles or trucks to drive behind one another at extremely close distances, thus reducing fuel consumption
Participants use the fortissimo Rovers (miniature vehicles equipped with sensor technology) and/or a simulation environment to research various issues in the area of platooning. They will also utilize the AutoFOCUS 3 model-based system engineering tool developed by fortiss, as well as other open-source-tools, to analyze and develop the following functions, in addition to others:
Students enjoy hands-on access to the following phases of a model-based development process:
Each semester the practical course covers current research topics such as:
