AIM vehicle fleet

Versatile technical equipment enables research vehicles to be used to investigate the effects of cooperative driver assistance systems on drivers and the traffic environment. Using such equipment, cooperative assistance systems can be tested, analysed and validated on the road at an early stage in their development. As part of the Application Platform for Intelligent Mobility (AIM) traffic research facility in Braunschweig, the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) Institute of Transportation Systems operates hardware and software platforms that are easy to install in many different types of vehicle. As a result, the DLR research vehicles can be optimally equipped based on the specific requirements of individual test campaigns; for example, for communications between the vehicle and its environment (Car2X).
