In order to meet future mobility and transport requirements, road vehicles for passenger and freight traffic as well as public transport systems gain an increasing degree of autonomy and will be embedded into an intelligent infrastructure, which relies on information and communication technology. The Cooperative Mobile Systems group targets autonomous systems such as autonomous transport vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles as well as smart environments in which they operate. A main objective is to achieve deployability of autonomous systems in real industrial or urban environments. The group develops tools and methods for a reliable perception of the environment and for cooperative behaviour in order to achieve a safe and efficient operation. Further aspects are the integration of sensor data into a consistent view on the environment and the design as an overall system of systems.
