Kontrol KoPilot in Action
The international research and development centre Virtual Vehicle and Kontrol have further advanced a possible certification of ADAS/AD at the proving ground of ÖAMTC Fahrtechnik Zentrum Lang/Lebring.
Kontrol Smart Lib technology logically interprets and transforms applicable regulations (e.g. traffic act) into computable code.
The Kontrol Check algorithm compares if a planned vehicle trajectory violates any of the boundary conditions computed by the Kontrol monitor.
Kontrol Monitor predicts the allowed reachable area for the ego vehicle for the next iteration step. The allowed reachable area is based on the current vehicle state, a physical model of the car, and the boundary conditions, derived from the Kontrol Smart Lib.
Kontrol Safe is an operational fail safe mode for autonomous vehicles. If the Kontrol Check algorithm detects a violation of the boundary conditions (e.g. rule violation), an alternative trajectory or emergency maneuver can be enforced.
With these four modules the Kontrol KoPilot enables the autonomous vehicle to calculate the reachable area to apply all relevant rules and to verify the path.
