Focus of Research
Automotive Systems Engineering and its methods are the focus of research at FZD. In the field of Automated Driving, we want to contribute to its safe introduction through work on its function and especially its safeguarding. The Validation Methodology is also deployed in other fields of research, such as Artificial Intelligence Application for assistance and automation functions. New mechatronic system concepts are researched in the field of Chassis Systems and the reasons for the rubbing and cracking behavior of brake discs are analyzed. Motorcycle Research poses a specialty as FZD is the only university chair in Germany with a long tradition in this field. Here, the focus of current research are concepts for Motorcycle Rider Assistance. Innovative Driving Simulation Concepts expand the application spectrum of driving simulators to urban scenarios and motorcycle applications.
