The Stadtpilot project aims at autonomous driving on Braunschweig's inner city ring road. For this purpose, an autonomous vehicle called “Leonie” has been developed. In October 2010, after two years of research, “Leonie's” abilities were presented in a public demonstration. This vehicle is one of the first worldwide to show the(More)
The development of the autonomous vehicle named “Caroline” for the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge was a great opportunity to demonstrate the abilities of the Technische Universität Braunschweig in the research field of autonomous driving. Among 11 teams out of the initially 89, the CarOLO team mastered the challenges to qualify for the(More)
With the “Stadtpilot”-Project the Technische Universit ät Braunschweig transfers the knowledge gained from its participation in the DARPA Urban Challenge Event to the real urban environment of Braunschweig's inner ring road. The goal is to drive fully autonomously in the traffic flow and to behave according to traffic rules. On October(More)
With the announcement of the “Stadtpilot”- Project the Technische Universität Braunschweig has accepted the challenge of guiding a vehicle fully autonomously in the complex environment of Braunschweig's entire ring road. Autonomous driving on this two-lane urban road includes interaction with traffic, behavior at intersections, lane(More)
This paper shows how extended vehicle related sensor data is gained and used within the cooperative system developed in the project KOLINE. This system aims at coordinating traffic in order to achieve a reduction of delay and emissions in urban networks by exchanging information between traffic signals and approaching vehicles. Besides receiving information(More)
Driver assistance systems are commonly available in many vehicles. There are systems for safety functions like the Electronic Stability Control, Automatic Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System and automatic emergency braking. There are also systems for comfort functions like adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality and combined safety and(More)
A high percentage of deceleration and acceleration in urban traffic is caused by the stops at traffic lights. Reducing these required stops combined with an overall smoother traffic flow can reduce the negative effects on the environment in terms of less emissions, noise reduction, and energy consumption. In this paper a cooperative system developed in the(More)
