The DLR Institute of Transportation Systems has a research vehicle – a VW Passat GTE Plug-In Hybrid – for the testing of new assistance functions for highly automated driving with driver observation and vision recognition systems. Depending on the area under investigation, the vehicle can be used either on public roads or on private test routes. Due to its in-built camera technology, the research vehicle can also be used to study human–vehicle interaction.
