1. FAMNIT-HTWD-Hackathon

Remaining time:

The first joint hackathon of the University of Koper (FAMNIT) and the HTW Dresden (Mechlab) will take place from September 11th, 2024 to September 17th, 2024. In one week, new functions for driver assistance and vehicle automation are to be developed. The event will take place at the Izola campus in the Delta and Epsilon rooms and in the parking lot. The two planned functions are:


Development of a driver information for a Reversing Assistant (Example)


Development of a lidar-based Autonomous Emergency Brake – AEB (Example)


Development methodology

A step-by-step methodology is used to develop the functions. First, the basic function can be created and tested using a Simulink model (Model-in-the-Loop – MiL). This is then ported to the target hardware, initially outside the vehicle. This is simulated using a PC and connected via the CAN bus used in the vehicle (Hardware-in-the-Loop – HiL). Once the functions have been successfully tested, the driving tests are carried out in the test vehicle on the test site (road test). The following video shows a SiL-simulation for a two stages automatic emergency brake AEB (model available on request – email to trautmann@htw-dresden.de).
