“After working as a PhD student at Robert Bosch GmbH for three years, I started working as a developer at Audi in 2005. Since then, I have been involved in many projects in the field of environmental sensors, driver assistance systems and integral safety (especially active pedestrian protection, PreCrash systems) and piloted driving. I am project leader and co-founder of the Audi Autonomous Driving Cup.”

“I’ve been at AUDI AG since 2011, where I completed both my master’s thesis and my dissertation. For five years now I have been involved in the parking garage pilot project and am developing a level-4-vehicle with my colleagues. In addition, from 2007 to 2011, I participated in RoboCup Soccer in the Middle Size League. I am particularly looking forward to the AADC, since we received a large number of very good applications and the problem-solving approaches represent new impulses. The experience and challenge are provided by us at Audi, the concepts by you from the universities and the playful comparison by the contest.”

“Since 2015 I have been a permanent member of the Audi family and have previously written both my bachelor’s and master’s thesis in the context of Online and Car2X functions. In my work at Audi Electronics Venture GmbH, I am involved in the development of high-precision maps, which are an important prerequisite for piloted driving in series production. I see the AADC as a platform for creative ideas and exciting solutions that have inspired us for years.”

“I joined Audi in 2018 and am currently working in artificial intelligence R&D with focus on deep learning. Before, I did my doctorate in experimental particle physics at the Large Hadron Collider, where I worked with various statistical methods and machine learning techniques on large amounts of data and learned to appreciate the synergy of science and engineering. I’m looking forward to seeing the diverse solutions and problem-solving skills of this year’s teams in action.”
