Technology Enablers towards Connected and Autonomous Driving

By Giacomo Tuveri, Keysight Technologies on Oct 11, 2017 11:36:00 PM

Recent developments in the automotive sector provided a glimpse of future mobility with autonomous driving – safer roads, improved road usage and traffic efficiency, lower emissions, the introduction of self-driving uber-like services and possibly changes in city landscapes towards a more sustainable urban living.

Autonomous driving is no longer just a concept. Self-driving vehicles are already hitting the road in some countries. The connected car is already here in many ways with advanced telematics becoming more and more available on a wide range of vehicles, Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) almost a reality. This article focuses on the enabling technologies which pave the way towards the vehicles of the future.

AMZ Team's driverless car won the Formula Student Germany

By Fabio Meier on Sep 6, 2017 2:38:00 PM

Eleven months after the decision to participate at the Formula Student Driverless the time has come: Formula Student Germany was around the corner.

Up until then, we had managed to integrate a second project into AMZ and teach flüela how to drive autonomously. Due to the novelty of the competition, it was difficult to assess the project’s progress. Accordingly, we had to work extremely hard to ensure a competitive level of performance.

After all, the hard work of this eleven month seems to payed off: We reached the podium in each of the eight disciplines and won five of them. Moreover, we won the overall championship in the driverless category.

But this was not a straight and easy way to achieve.

Formula Student East made some noise

By Adrienn Horvath on Aug 10, 2017 9:37:00 AM

Our colleagues visited the Formula Student East car race, which is a student engineering competition. It took place between 20th and 23rd of July in Hungary at the Euroring race-circuit near Budapest.

Student teams from around the world design, build, test, and race a small-scale formula-style racing car. What makes FS really unique is that it uses the same rules as the original Formula SAE with supplementary regulations. As the competition has been significantly expanded compared to the first season (in 2016), 40 combustion and 20 electric teams are able to participate at FS East this year.
