Pursuing the vision of making driverless vehicles useful for society, the researchers at Freie Universität are making gradual improvements to modern driver assistance systems and have now brought the interaction between humans and machines to a new level. The driver of the vehicle can now integrate the “intelligence” of the car as needed. With an ordinary mobile multimedia device (iPad) the driver can access all the on-board electronics. This opens up entirely new possibilities for operating the vehicle, far beyond the previous ideas of remote control.
Professor Raúl Rojas and his team will present their “thinking” car at a press conference, followed by demonstration (exclusively for journalists, accreditation mandatory) on Wednesday, October 13, 2010, 9:30 a.m. on the grounds of former Tempelhof Airport, Tempelhofer Damm 1–7, 12101 Berlin, GAT C, subway station: Paradestr. (U6).
Accredited journalists will be met at the building entrance. Directions and procedural details will be sent along with the confirmation.
Attendance is by reservation only. In addition, following the demonstration individual film and photo shoots or interviews will be possible beginning at 12:30. If interested, please indicate this in your registration (see below). Individual appointments will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
