UNICARagil is a German flagship project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). It combines the expertise of eight leading German universities and eight selected German industry specialists in the field of Automated Driving. Starting in 2018, they collaborate in this four-year project, to establish disruptive, modular hardware and software architectures specifically made for automated and driverless vehicle concepts. The goal is to decisively shape the mobility of the future by rethinking established architectures. Members of the consortium are RWTH Aachen University, TU Braunschweig, TU Darmstadt, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Technical University of Munich, University of Stuttgart, University of Ulm and University of Passau as well as the industrial partners ATLATEC GmbH, flyXdrive GmbH, iMAR Navigation GmbH, IPG Automotive GmbH, Schaeffler Technologies AG & Co. KG and VIRES Simulation Technology GmbH. The project is also supported by the associated partners Maxion Wheels Holding GmbH and Valeo Schalter und Sensoren GmbH. UNICARagil is funded by the BMBF with a total of 32 million euros and will run for 64 months. During the first phase of the project, the project’s more than 100 scientists and engineers started establishing concepts based on the latest research in the fields of automated and connected driving, electromobility and computer science. The interdisciplinary and agile approach lead to a modular and scalable vehicle platform for automated vehicles which can be easily shaped according to many different use-cases. The vehicles are supported by a control center that allows for human interventions and a cloud backend supporting the vehicles’ functionality. Other key areas of research are the development of generic sensor modules for environment perception, a flexibly expandable and updatable software and hardware architecture, innovative dynamics modules that allow completely new forms of movement in road traffic and a sensor drone informing the vehicles about their environment. Based on the developed concepts, four fully automated vehicles will be designed and prototyped during the project – autoELF: A vehicle for personal use, autoSHUTTLE: A supplement to public transport, autoTAXI: A robotaxi for individual mobility-as-a-service and autoCARGO: A delivery pod for the automated transportation of goods.
