LIDAR raw sensor data

The technology specialist Bertrandt uses the EMIL e-bus from Regensburg as a research and development platform. On the old town route, raw sensor data is recorded using LIDAR and processed for central research fields such as object recognition. This will support autonomous driving in urban environments in the future.

Autonomous driving

The idea of autonomous driving has already become tangible on highways. In order to promote this vision in an urban context and to expand the intelligence of urban mobility, the EMIL e-bus in Regensburg offers a research platform for cluster members to develop and demonstrate new innovations in real operation.

As a project partner and member of the Cluster Mobility & Logistics, Bertrandt has taken the opportunity to use this platform to build up a broad range of expertise. In particular, topics such as dynamic object recognition, e.g. of pedestrians or cyclists with machine learning, LIDAR image processing, data transmission and localization are being worked on by Bertrandt in an interdisciplinary team in this project. Experienced cooperation partners such as Microsoft (Azure Cloud), Quanergy and Hexagon PI (hardware) are also involved.

Project launch at TechBase

The official project launch took place at TechBase. At the launch event, Dieter Daminger, Economic, Science and Finance Officer for the City of Regensburg, said: "Innovative companies such as Bertrandt, which drive forward future technologies and seek cooperation with universities, such as OTH Regensburg, are living the idea of knowledge transfer." Manfred Koller, Managing Director of Stadtwerke Regensburg, also emphasized: "Implementing and developing technology for the future together with local companies strengthens the entire region. In doing so, we can show what potential the city of Regensburg has."
