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…

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…
