  • Traffic safety, driver assistance systems, and autonomous driving
  • Active and passive safety

Intelligent sensor systems

  • Sensors and measuring principles (e.g. radar and camera sensors)
  • How intelligent sensors work (e.g. image processing, pattern recognition, sensor fusion)

Driver assistance systems

  • Video-based systems (e.g. vehicle, pedestrian, lane, traffic sign recognition)
  • Systems at stabilization level (e.g. ESP)
  • Systems on path guidance level (e.g. lane keeping, adaptive cruise control, parking assistance)
