Autonomous Cars for Research and Development

…thanks to the MXcarkit. The success story from a model car at a student competition to a top tool in research and development has already been told. In this blog post, we will use an application example to show what can be extracted from the perfectly equipped model cars, both among students in research institutes and in the R&D department of an OEM. The MXcarkits are modified vehicles originally from model construction that do much more than remotely control driving and parking situations. By incorporating sensor technology and a real-time computer, they have real computing power on board and can…

Annual review: How MdynamiX experienced the year 2020

ATZ Driving Experience

Munich/Kempten. The year 2020 was a very memorable one for all of us and will forever have a special place in our memories. The year took its course, but then COVID-19 hit globally. We also faced seemingly insurmountable challenges. After the initial shock, we went to work in our home offices in the very first lockdown. Despite the Corona pandemic, MdynamiX looks back on a successful year with this short review. The big highlight was definitely the roll-out event including the Tech Day at the beginning of the year. The MX partner institute Adrive Living Lab of the University of…

Shelter 16 – the new HQ of MdynamiX is being built in the Allgäu region

Shelter 16, neues HQ MdynamiX Allgäu

MdynamiX AG has been building bridges between science and industry since 2014. Since then, the company has been contributing to the benefit of people, society and the economy through the effective transfer of invention to innovation. Until now, Munich was the main location; in 2017, Kempten was added as a partner location. At the Munich site, research teams work on advanced solutions for vehicle dynamics and comfort, acoustics and NVH technology. Innovative solutions in the field of driver assistance systems and automated driving are developed at the partner location in the Allgäu region. All research teams have one thing in…

Using Electric Drives for Active Sound Generation

Active Sound Generation MXsounddesigner

MdynamiX, the Affiliated Institute of the Munich University of Applied Sciences, is researching noise generation using electric drives in order apply this approach to acoustic function augmentation in the future. The electric motor virtually becomes a loudspeaker and can thus serve as a so-called Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS). Without additional hardware, the applications developed can be used not only to realize the required warning signals for electric vehicles, but also to design brand-specific sounds. The basic functionality of electric drives is not affected or even disturbed. Read the full article in ATZ issue October 2020 or download PDF

Concept study on customer acceptance of camera-monitor systems

Kamera-Monitor-System Konzeptstudie

Kempten / Illertissen. Digital rear-view mirrors are no longer news, they are on the rise. On the one hand, for aerodynamic reasons and the associated energy savings – especially in the case of electromobility, every kilometer saved counts. On the other hand, the new camera-based systems provide a more comprehensive retrospective view and thus greater safety. But what about customer acceptance? The Adrive Living Lab, the research partner of MdynamiX in the Allgäu region, is also familiar with the topic of digital rear view mirrors. Already in 2018 the team had conducted a study with the title “User Experience in…

Integration of a vehicle body on the aVDS driving simulator

Fahrsimulator neues Cockpit, Fahrzeugkarosserie

Since March this year, our colleagues of the Adrive Living Lab of the University of Applied Sciences Kempten have been using a new advanced vehicle driving simulator (aVDS) from AB Dynamics and Williams Advanced Engineering for their research activities. By integrating a vehicle cockpit, the Kempten-based research institute has now taken another important step towards improving the experience of virtual driving tests on the driving simulator. At the rollout event in March this year, Science Minister Bernd Sibler as well as local hero and Formula E professional driver Daniel Abt were the first test drivers to have the opportunity to…

Adrive Living Lab and MdynamiX conduct new study on parking manoeuvre assistants

Probandenstudie PMA - Adrive Living Lab Hochschule Kempten MdynamiX

Kempten. MX research partner Adrive Living Lab is working on customer acceptance studies also in corona times. With the necessary detailed hygiene concept, a new subject- study could take place in Kempten – this time on the fully automated parking manoeuver assistants (PMA) of two vehicles with hybrid or hydrogen drive. The test study was conducted by employees of the Adrive Living Lab of the University of Applied Sciences Kempten and MdynamiX. External experts and employees of both institutes were available as test persons and participated in the three-hour study. Analyses are performed digitally on a tablet with the MXeval…

The MXcarkit – from model car in a student competition to top tool for research and development

Autonomous Cars for Research and Development

So far, the MXcarkits have become known through the VDI’s Autonomous Driving Challenge event and have performed well from the start. What leads to success for a competition among engineering students can work just as well in real research and development in the field of autonomous driving. This was also the opinion of Prof. Peter Pfeffer and Prof. Markus Krug. The result: the MXcarkits.   Fun becomes serious The car kits are vehicles from model construction, but they do much more than just cope incredibly well with remote-controlled driving and parking situations. By installing a sensor system and a real-time…
