About us

We are a collaborative effort by Eindhoven University of Technology and Fontys University of Applied Sciences to research, develop, and demonstrate cooperative and autonomous driving technologies. Our students range from Bachelor’s to Master’s to Ph.D.’s, and do work on all aspects of autonomous and cooperative driving.

Sensor Technology

Autonomous driving starts with processing information form sensors mounted on the vehicle. These sensors help the vehicle perceive it’s surrounding. One of the additional sensors that our project uses is a wireless communication module. This helps our vehicle connect with other vehicles and with infrastructure to assist autonomous driving.

Controllers

Based on sensor information, algorithms in the decision-making layer decide what the car needs to do. Here, a path planning algorithm provides a route for the vehicle to follow. Then, the controllers take action and determine how much the car should accelerate or brake and steer in order to accurately follow the determined path.

Human-Machine Interface

With all the information within the vehicle’s processor, it is necessary to study what kind of information needs to be displayed to the driver and passengers. One of our departments performs such research and has developed an award-winning system that displays the necessary information to the human beings in the vehicle.
