AutoTruck – e-truck with Steer-by-Wire and Drive-by-Wire Konsortium E 180 AX
|Name:||AutoTruck – e-truck with Steer-by-Wire and Drive-by-Wire|
|Model:||E 180 AX|
|Partner:||Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation and Infrastructure Systems IVI|
A fully-licensed 18-ton e-truck with integrated drive-by-wire and steer-by-wire system (AutoTruck) offers the possibility to test many technologies, such as
- positioning and navigation,
- collision avoidance,
- car2infrastructure communication,
- real-time maneuver planning,
- cooperative driving and
- high-precision driving (e.g. docking).
The routes that are calculated by TruckTrix® can be visualized using DriveLab – a demonstrator developed especially for this purpose. Maps, combined with the proposed route, are projected on the floor. Model vehicles operate on these maps.
For the testing of positioning and sensor systems as well as for driving tests, the Fraunhofer IVI has its own test track located directly on institute premises.
The infrastructure at the Fraunhofer IVI is available for future research and development projects or studies.
