The mobility of the future must meet high standards: Transportation must be environmentally friendly, inner cities must be preserved as a liveable space, and traffic must be made safer and more efficient at the same time. The solution for this is an intelligent transport system with autonomous vehicles.
BeIntelli is the showcase project for autonomous driving and makes the developments of the complex technologies and the implementation in smart vehicles and infrastructure tangible for everyone.
At BeIntelli, everything comes from a single source: the technology, an advanced autonomous vehicle fleet, and a physical centre for AI that can be experienced as an exhibition and event space.
BeIntelli transfers theory into practice, demonstrates the application scenarios of tomorrow’s mobility using models as well as in real urban traffic and thus makes it tangible and understandable for the general public even today.
New and powerful technologies are the basis for vehicles that behave like humans and are so intelligent that they can move autonomously. For this, both the vehicles and the traffic environment must “think” and communicate with each other. The basis of this networked interaction is a scalable software stack developed by BeIntelli, the “AI Mobility OS” operating system.
The operating system is integrated both in digitised vehicles, in the traffic infrastructure (e.g. in traffic lights) and also in the cloud. In this way, the AI-Mobility-OS enables the use of artificial intelligence on different levels: from the use of raw data (e.g. weather, parking space occupancy, traffic density) to the application on merged data from individual operational points (e.g. adjusted traffic light switching due to changed weather conditions such as icy roads and traffic density or changed routes to avoid congestion, noise pollution and accidents).
BeIntelli built an urban test field in the heart of Berlin that stretches from the Brandenburg Gate via Ernst-Reuter-Platz to the Gedächtniskirche and represents a completely digitised route with state-of-the-art sensor technology. With test bus stops for digitised local public transport and further infrastructure for the autonomously operating vehicle fleet, BeIntelli brings the latest state of research to the streets.
The BeIntelli vehicle fleet consists of different types of vehicles – cars, vans and buses – which are available for experiments on the test track and as demonstration objects for the mobility of the future. The car can be used to model individual transport (e.g. privately used vehicles, sharing cars and autonomously driving taxi services), the van shows autonomous parcel delivery and logistics scenarios, and the bus enables testing of autonomously driving local public transport in the centre of the capital.
Getting to know autonomous driving, experiencing it for yourself and understanding it. Through participation and co-design, the aim is to create acceptance for AI in mobility and to research and demonstrate the needs of mobility in the future.
BeIntelli is the showcase for AI-based mobility through transparent communication, the autonomous vehicle fleet and the physical centre for AI that makes autonomous driving tangible. Through workshops, public information events or demonstration rides in autonomous cars and buses, the functionality of intelligent mobility is made understandable in a very practical way. BeIntelli reduces fears of contact and wants to increase the acceptance of future technology in society at large through education.
BeIntelli makes its data and models available to other market players such as start-ups and industry partners to enable them to develop further AI-powered mobility solutions.
The diverse real-time and raw data collected by BeIntelli’s sensors, can be used to develop and test new applications in real-world environments. BeIntelli thus promotes the development of a new ecosystem for applications and services in the context of mobility.
The network of companies and researchers facilitated by BeIntelli enables collaboration to jointly shape the mobility of the future and make it become reality.
