Bertrandt takes an integrative development approach to autonomous vehicles, connectivity and electric mobility. We develop intelligent autonomous systems that can react and make decisions independently on the basis of information from the vehicle’s environment. For example, in a project to develop an autonomous parking system (using online data, cameras and lidar), we sent sensor data to the cloud and processed it using algorithms and artificial intelligence. The output of this process was a set of instructions which were sent back to the vehicle. This enabled it to steer, brake and move independently.
Examples of projects
- The b.forward innovation project involving the development of an autonomous, level 4 vehicle based on the showcase Park and Charge project
- Detecting stop markings (road signs) using cameras
- The b.competent project which identified driving styles using machine learning
In projects to develop connected assistance systems, we are resolving problems such as how to continue using automated driving functions without an online connection (bridging data, interpolation mechanisms etc.). This includes concepts relating to data handling, data compression and data storage in the vehicle.
