The IKA develops the necessary systems for environment detection, localization, trajectory planning and control. In addition, the research institute is responsible for linking the test field in Düsseldorf with the existing urban test site in Aldenhoven through a uniform standards-based network structure. Thus, systems and functions can be developed and secured in the controlled field at the Aldenhoven Testing Center before they are used in real test traffic in the Düsseldorf urban test area.
In addition, the IKA will evaluate the driving functions developed by the various project partners in the course of the project with regard to their impact on traffic safety and efficiency, as well as develop a driving simulator to make the developed functions experienceable for everyone.
The KoMoD project has a term of 25 months to June 2019 and is supported by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure with a total of around 9 million euros.
Apart from IKA, eleven other partners are also involved, including the City of Düsseldorf, the German Aerospace Center DLR, Siemens, Vodafone, Mobileye Germany and TRW Germany.
