Advanced Driver Assistance Systems – ADAS-Lab

The aim of ADAS Lab (Advanced Driver Assistant Systems Living Lab) is to foster research, development, and demonstration of interactive in-vehicle systems as well as novel mobility concepts. It is located on Saarland University campus und is comprised of the following parts: two driving simulation laboratories, several test vehicles (BMW, Mercedes), a testing and demonstration course, a workshop for prototype construction as well as a bike fleet (including e-bikes).

The driving simulation laboratories are equipped with DFKI's own software OpenDS ( Here, we conduct usability and acceptance studies during and after the design process. On the test track, we run test and demonstration drives, for which DFKI holds a special permit. The workshop is equipped with appliances for prototypical manufacturing of product designs.

From June 2014 on, ADAS Labs furthermore runs a bike fleet on Saarland University Campus. Several cargo bikes (including e-bikes) can be used for free by students, faculty, and guests. We gather anonymous data with the aim to improve multimodal transportation concepts.
