Explore the Cyber-Physical Mobility Lab
The main computer is the primary operation device and runs the Lab Control Center (LCC). The LCC sets up experiments. The main computer also runs the camera-based indoor positioning system.
In order to enable rapid functional prototyping, we provide external computational entities to each vehicle. Read more about rapid functional prototyping in the CPM Lab in our architecture.
The lab camera and four LEDs on each vehicle form the indoor positioning system. The system processes images of the vehicles’ LEDs and detects each vehicle’s ID, position, and orientation.
The map has a drivable curvature, which considers the vehicles’ dynamics. The digital representation of the map is used in
high-level algorithms. The physical map can be easily exchanged.
