V-Charge - Autonomous Valet Parking and Charging for e-Mobility

Project description


Cognitive Systems and Robotics
Smart car system for optimal combination of public and individual transportation
The V-Charge project is based on the vision that, due to required drastic decrease of CO2 production and energy consumption, mobility will undergo important changes in the years to come. This includes new concept for an optimal combination of public and individual transportation as well as the introduction of electrical cars that need coordinated recharging. A typical scenario of such a concept might be automatic drop-off and recovery of a car without taking care of parking or re-charging. The objective of this project is to develop a smart car system that allows for autonomous driving in designated areas and can offer advanced driver support in urban environments. The final goal is the demonstration and implementation of a fully operational future car system including autonomous local transportation, valet parking and battery charging on the campus of ETH Zurich and TU Braunschweig.
