“Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.” – Barry Finlay

We are AlpaKa, a multidisciplinary team from Karlsruhe, representing the FZI and consisting of ve motivated students from the elds of computer science, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering fascinated by autonomous driving. Our di erent focuses on computer
vision, machine learning, sensors, control engineering and software engineering will help us to face the complex challenges of autonomous driving and compete in the Audi Autonomous Driving Cup.

Academic Chair

The Team is supervised by the department Technical Cognitive Systems (TCS) at FZI Research Center for Information Technology.
The department’s central research topic comprises methods and tools for the development and evaluation of components used in higher decision levels of technical systems in human-centered environments. At this, the main focus lies on the practical implementation in mobile systems applications, such as intelligent driverless transport systems and driver assistance systems in future cars. In this context, it is a crucial challenge to exploit techniques for situation recognition and analysis as well as knowledge-based approaches in order to connect perceptual functions and controlling tasks. The department is scienti cally supported by Professor Zollner. He is director at FZI and professor for applied technical cognitive systems for mobility and driving assistance (ATCS) at the Institute for Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods (AIFB) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).
