Project details

Short description

The joint research project POV.OS funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) aims at developing an innovative automation platform for mobile professional operation vehicles based on an open software/hardware architecture. This includes the holistic conception and demonstrative implementation of a cross-application platform with modular system components that can be used as a basis for specifying and implementing application-related automation, assistance and autonomous driving functions. A central computing unit with safe and certified components as well as standardized interfaces enables all companies in the value chain for professional machines to quickly develop and modify relevant products. Networking and the possibility of simulating mobile machines using standardized hardware will also optimize future development times and the import of updates and upgrades. The focus of the project is on the development and demonstrative implementation of a common core system consisting of hardware and software components for control, sensory acquisition and networking of the professional operation machines.

The Chair of Automatic Control of the FAU is participating in POV.OS with the development of a modular and learning control and planning concept for professional operation vehicles.
