Automated Driving Systems Demo: Effects of haptic guidance on driving performance following a takeover request.


A demonstration of the novel haptic guidance system equipped on the JKU-ITS research vehicle was conducted at the Aldenhoven Testing Center (ATC) in Aachen, Germany, in June 2022.
The performance of the system was demonstrated after a takeover request (TOR). Various participants drove the research vehicle around the test track while performing a non-driving related task (NDRT). A sudden event on the road forced them to deviate from the path. They were then assisted by the haptic guidance.

Servus TV, Parcel delivery by robot?

The exploding delivery traffic is also the result of our many online purchases. Computer scientists at the University of Linz now want to solve parcel delivery in such a way that roads and streets are not blocked and the air remains clean. The result is an autonomous postal robot.

Chair for Sustainable "Transport Logistics 4.0" at the JKU performs autonomous driving tests in the Digitrans test track in St. Valentin.  

The JKU-ITS team tested how well its research vehicle can hold its position in the middle of the lane in tight curves. The conditions on the test track were almost perfect and the test run went successfully.
