A Journey Towards Digital Mobility

IAV at the the International Congress ELIV

      A Journey Towards Digital Mobility

      Under this banner IAV will be presenting different showcases and three demonstrator vehicles at the International Congress ELIV.

      We are currently witnessing the most exciting phase in the history of automotive engineering: vehicles and IT are merging ever more closely. Soon, automobiles will be “always on”, i.e. permanently connected to the internet. As part of the Internet of Things, they will then exchange data with the cloud and mobile devices, permitting completely new services and making everyday routine noticeably easier for users. IAV will be taking you on a journey towards the future of mobility at the International Congress ELIV on October 18 and 19 in Bonn.

      IAV has a clear vision of tomorrow’s vehicles. We are working on a car that seamlessly connects the digital world with personal mobility. Mobile devices and data from the cloud will match the vehicle to the needs of occupants, create a pleasant atmosphere and make traveling as safe and as comfortable as possible.

      HoloLens Showcase


      As digitalization progresses further and further, new virtualization methods allow for the simulation of function concepts and implemented functions in any traffic situation long before a cost-intensive physical prototype is produced. The development of mixed reality simulation based on the Microsoft HoloLens immerses the user in a traffic situation to observe it from the pedestrian point of view and interact with its elements. Seamless combination of the mixed reality application with IAV's Scene Suite traffic simulation tool makes all modules available from pre- to post-processing in the process chain of a mixed reality simulation.

      The trend towards autonomous driving shifts driving responsibility from the driver to the vehicle. However, the driver's interaction with his or her environment is also important besides the pure driving tasks. The following situation is used as a specific example: an autonomous vehicle approaches a zebra crossing that is being used by a pedestrian. In general, the human driver knows instinctively how to control the vehicle and use non-verbal communication such as hand gestures to let the pedestrian know that s/he can use the zebra crossing without any danger. By contrast, an autonomous vehicle follows the defined specification.

      New technologies such as the Microsoft HoloLens make it possible to create a mixed reality where the user perceives virtual objects in the same way as the physical surroundings. The showcase transports the user into a virtual traffic scenario which can then be viewed from the pedestrian's perspective, while at the same time being able to interact with the virtual surroundings. Coupled driving functions can also react in real time to the simulated pedestrian and control the movements of the virtual vehicles. Mixed reality simulation with the Microsoft HoloLens supports the algorithm development process for highly automated driving functions.
