Year in review: The year 2021 for MdynamiX

Munich/Benningen. A good year is coming to an end. Despite the Corona pandemic, which affected our private and business life to a greater or lesser extent, we can be proud of a successful year. The year 2021 started with the large research project METAVI. Together with well-known industrial companies such as Audi, Continental, Schaeffler, AB Dynamics and the Kempten University of Applied Sciences (IFM), we started the joint project. Over a period of three years, the project partners will conduct research in the field of automated driving and steer-by-wire systems with a special focus on the user experience and virtual…

All-round upgrade: Dynamic driving simulator now fully operational in Benningen

ABD driving simulator at University Kempten

Kempten/Benningen. Since October 2021, we eventually have it back: After weeks of moving from Kempten to the new location of the Institute for Driver Assistance and Connected Mobility (IFM) in Benningen, the dynamic driving simulator is back in operational use. The simulation team of the Adrive research group took the opportunity to implement an extensive upgrade. The result: a significantly larger and more powerful visualization, more room to move, increased performance and a wider range of applications in the field of driving dynamics, driving comfort and automated driving. When it was decided to move the institute to the new location…

MdynamiX presents new MXcarkit equipment at the VDI congress “ELIV” 2021

Bonn. On October 20 and 21, the MXcarkits and its specially developed brand-new equipment will be presented to a large live audience for the first time. The international VDI congress “ELIV” opens its doors again this year and offers the platform to see the small fully autonomous vehicles with the matching and VDI ADC compliant accessories live. The MXcarkits are model vehicles that do much more than just remotely control driving and parking situations. By incorporating sensor technology and a real-time computer, they have real computing power on board and can thus master automated driving situations. The MXcarkit is quickly…

WEBINAR: How to scale ADAS testing with objective KPIs

How to scale ADAS testing with objective KPIs

Panel discussion with MdynamiX, GeneSys, atlatec and the Kempten University of Applied Sciences  Tuesday, June 8th, 2021 – 10 am CEST (German) Thursday June 10th, 2021 – 18 pm CEST (English) Modern-day ADAS features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Keep Assist/LKAS and others are a highly innovative domain. Some developments are driven by regulatory requirements (NCAP etc.), others aim to give car makers an edge over their competition, in terms of comfort and driving pleasure. Especially for the latter, however, regulatory requirements are insufficient KPIs for designing and testing ADAS features: One of the main challenges is how to define…

Using the design thinking method to create the ideal head-up display

Test person designs his own head-up display

Kempten. The head-up display (HUD) is definitely a driver assistance system that triggers true enthusiasm among the majority of users. In addition to this euphoria, it contributes to greater safety on the road by projecting important information directly into the driver’s field of vision. This is because the car driver is not distracted by displays in the instrument cluster, the on-board computer or the navigation system display. However, an earlier subject study at Kempten University of Applied Sciences showed that the current HUD concept still has great potential for improvement from the customer’s point of view. Therefore, a study was…

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…
