Current

Logo Projekt NeXaTauto - Holistic conception, field-based practical testing and validation of autonomous work processes in crop productionNeXaTauto - Holistic conception, field-based practical testing and validation of autonomous work processes in crop production
The Kalverkamp company, with the support of the Working Group for Optimization and Optimal Control of the Center for Technomathematics and the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences, is developing the novel, electrically driven, multifunctional agricultural vehicle NeXaT for autonomous agriculture and the elimination of ecological and economic weak points of today's tractor combinations.

Time period: 01.09.2020 - 31.08.2023
Leadership: Prof. Dr. Christof Büskens, Andreas Folkers


Logo Projekt OPA³L - Optimally Assisted, Highly Automated, Autonomous and Cooperative Vehicle Navigation and LocalizationOPA³L - Optimally Assisted, Highly Automated, Autonomous and Cooperative Vehicle Navigation and Localization
The goal of the project is to automate recurring drives in known areas and in particular to present solutions for cooperative maneuvers in such areas. For this the partners are working on the implementation in an application-oriented test field.

Time period: 01.03.2019 - 14.02.2023
Leadership: Prof. Dr. Christof Büskens, Arne Berger, Dr.-Ing. Mitja Echim, Matthias Rick, Andreas Folkers


Completed

Logo Projekt AO-Car – Autonome, optimale Fahrzeugnavigation und -steuerung im Fahrzeug-Fahrgast-Nahbereich für den städtischen BereichAO-Car – Autonome, optimale Fahrzeugnavigation und -steuerung im Fahrzeug-Fahrgast-Nahbereich für den städtischen Bereich
The aim of the AO-Car research project is to develop autonomous and safe driving maneuvers for (electric) cars in urban traffic. Different maneuvers, which are particularly relevant in the passenger-specific assistance area, are to be modeled and implemented and tested on a real vehicle in the best possible way.

Time period: since 01.09.2016
Leadership: Prof. Dr. Christof Büskens, Dr.-Ing. Mitja Echim
