Construction sites and autonomous vehicles
Construction sites are a major challenge for developers and engineers of autonomous vehicles. Construction sites represent complex situations, such as narrowed lanes, short-term changes during the construction, tight curve radii and detours to other lanes. These states are not standardized traffic situations and are therefore difficult to detect via the installed sensors in the vehicle - especially in bad weather conditions. Together with science and industry partners from the construction and automotive industries, we are developing a system that will enable safe driving with autonomous vehicles in construction sites in the future.
