IdeenExpo 2013: Driverless Driving

Logo IdeenExpo

Lehrte, 23. August 2013 — What might our mobile future look like? Does intelligent technology mean that decisions are increasingly being taken away from the people? You can find some answers on the IdeenExpo on booth LMM-18. On a special course students can compete with technology and learn if autonomous, driverless cars are able to drive better and safer than humans or if driverless technology is no substitute for a human driver at present. Taking a ride in a fully driverless car is possible as well and certainly increases the fun factor.

The visitors will have the opportunity to come into contact with high-end applications of cutting-edge technology of Lower Saxony. The (German) video below explains the principles of the competition.

Contact person: Dr.-Ing. Daniel Knopp, Department FOX
