Unikie joins the AI-SEE project, a PENTA EURIPIDES² funded research project, along with 21 partners comprising world class players on the OEM and supplier level. The project, led by Mercedes Benz AG, will develop a robust, fault-tolerant perception system to enable safe autonomous driving at SAE Level 4 in all-weather and daylight conditions in 24h/365-day mode.
Unikie will contribute to enhancing vehicle vision in low visibility conditions by offering software components for automated driving functions. This includes sensor fusion based Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) that utilizes data from maps, GPS, LiDAR, radar and IMU sensors or any subset of these.
In addition, Unikie will continue LiDAR development based on environment perception modules for filtering and processing 3D point-cloud data in adverse weather. Driving test results from different weather and road conditions will be achieved with Unikie’s own test car.
As a result, this dynamic mapping solution can be put to use not only in the automotive industry but also in industrial heavy duty and machinery.
The AI-SEE project’s innovations will become new game changing artificial intelligence based technologies for the global race between automotive OEMs developing autonomously driving vehicles.
