MONOCAB OWL Has the Answer
The project of the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences and Arts and its partners is working on an unconventional but brilliant idea:
Self-driving cabins run on single-track railway lines, simply called like cabs via app. Each cabin uses only one rail of the track, so several cabins can commute in both directions at the same time. The first test drives have been completed successfully on a historic railway line in Eastern Westphalia Lippe (OWL).
dSPACE Technology Inside
dSPACE technology acts as a “brain” for rapid prototyping onboard the monocab, and also for hardware-in-the-loop tests of all relevant functions in the lab. We are happy to be part of this wonderful project, sharing our expertise in e-mobility, electric drives, and autonomous driving to strengthen our community.
