The 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge afforded the golden opportunity for the Technische Universität Braunschweig to demonstrate its abilities to develop an autonomously driving vehicle to compete with the world's best competitors. After several stages of qualification, our team CarOLO qualified early for the DARPA Urban Challenge Final Event and was among only(More)
The Stadtpilot project aims at fully automated driving on Braunschweig's inner city ring road. The TU Braunschweig's research vehicle Leonie is one of the first vehicles having the ability of fully automated driving in real urban traffic scenarios. In this paper, we present our approaches for context representation and environment modeling for automated(More)
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)

Autonomous driving in urban environments is potentially dangerous since a malfunction of vehicle guidance systems can lead to severe situations for passengers inside the autonomous vehicle and other road users. Therefore both, monitoring the current system operation state by a surveillance system, which is able to detect failures of software and hardware(More)
