APEROL project to shake up Germany’s autonomous driving development


As part of a project to develop new technologies for autonomous personal driving and logistics, Germany’s Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure has selected PSI Logistics to lead its APEROL research project.

The Autonomous, PErson-Related Organization of road traffic and digital Logistics (APEROL) consists of a consortium of experts and research institutions to implement, test and validate a fully automated organization of traffic and transportation systems by the end of 2020.

PSI Logistics, a solutions provider for intelligent logistics management, has been awarded the leadership of the project and will partner with the University of Trier, the City of Aachen, e.GO Mobile, MAT.TRAFFIC as well as Ergosign.

PSI Logistics will develop the required algorithms and simulation technologies for mobility services. This includes the development of a user-friendly graphical user interface for intelligent mobility as well as the development of a transportation control and an integrated booking and remuneration system in a cloud-based framework.

The autonomous passenger vehicles management (scheduling, routing, and billing) is based on the PSItms Transport Management System from the PSI Logistics Suite.

In the framework of the research project, among others, processes and methods of artificial intelligence will be developed and used in practice in the vehicles.
