Digitalization and intelligent networking with the environment play an increasingly important role in the development of commercial vehicles.
The Fraunhofer innovation cluster »Digital Commercial Vehicle Technology: Vehicle - Environment - Human - Interaction (DNT/FUMI)« has been established in Kaiserslautern. The cluster is a decisive factor for the development of the area and has defined new forward-looking topics in cooperation with industrial partners.
Starting in 2018, the Innovation Cluster and all projects will be integrated into the Center"Digital Commercial Vehicle Technology"of the High Performance Center Simulation and Software Based Innovation.
Each of the projects listed specifies a working area that is clearly defined by industrial needs and covers several subprojects. Each topic can be assigned to one of the following three areas:
- Basic research
- Development of methods
- Tools and industrial application projects
The Focus of the Center:
The center »Digital Commercial Vehicle Technology« focuses on those areas that have already been defined in the innovation cluster. The main topic of these areas is »Energy Efficiency, Reliability and Operational Safety«. The center is divided into three projects:
- Project 1: »Energy and Process Optimization of Commercial Vehicles«
- Project 2: »Automated Driving Functions, Assistance- and Monitoring Systems«
- Project 3: »Human-Machine-Interface«
