GlobalDrive facilitates an interdisciplinary exchange with partner universities within and outside the EU in the context of a collaborative project.  

Students research sustainable solutions for real problems as part of their thesis (master's/study/bachelor's thesis). The project phase starts with a fully financed two-week stay abroad in the respective partner country and ends with an official final presentation together with the partners in Germany.

In particular, the international exchange and the active cooperation with students of the partner universities form a central part of the GlobalDrive program. Apply for a unique experience!  


ITA – Integrated Traffic-Simulation for Autonomous Driving 

The planned project will develop an immersive multi-scale simulation for training algorithms of autonomous vehicles as well as for testing and evaluating possible connected service concepts. For this purpose, a digital image of Munich's Karolinenplatz will be created and a realistic traffic situation will be derived from a mesoscopic agent simulation. In this digital sandbox, algorithms for autonomous vehicles can be tested and trained and their behavior studied. The resulting traffic effects are then fed back to the simulated traffic system to exemplify the impact of autonomous vehicles on traffic. This allows requirements for new technologies in the field of autonomous driving to be derived that go beyond the technical solution of driving tasks. For effective science communication, a user interface is planned through a VR application to the microsimulation.
