Welcome to Cooperative Autonomous Systems

Head of Research: Prof. Dr. Alexey Vinel

Office: Barbara Hammer

The research group "Cooperative Autonomous Systems" is performing applied research on the aspects of coordination, cooperation and communication between autonomous or highly automated vehicles, vulnerable road users and transportation infrastructure in complex environments. We are working on design and evaluation of vehicular communication (V2X) protocols, testing and validation of cooperative automated driving functions, such as platooning, development of new concepts for road transport coordination in cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS). We are interested in a transdisciplinary future mobility research and experiments in a real-world lab.
