For the (further) development and testing of driver assistance and driver information systems as well as automated driving functions (e.g. for active and passive safety) and for comfort functions, our test vehicles record environmental data, image and audio with the help of various sensors and video cameras in the vehicle. The cameras allow a 360° image around the vehicle, with a maximum range of 500 m. The audio recording is only used to record typical sounds of road traffic. The recorded environmental data is stored in a secure database and used exclusively for the (further) development and validation of driver assistance and driver information systems as well as automated driving functions and comfort functions as well as necessary tests. The aim of these systems is to improve road comfort and safety and to ensure the functionality of the vehicle for road use through the recorded video data.
