Main Objective

Developing a 24/7 sensor suite that enables cars to operate safely even in severe weather conditions.

DENSE - 24/7 Automotive Sensing System

DENSE seeks to eliminate one of the most pressing problems of automated driving: the inability of current systems to sense their surroundings under all weather conditions. Severe weather – such as snow, heavy rain or fog – have long been viewed as one of the last remaining technical challenges preventing self-driving cars from being brought to the market. This can only be overcome by developing a fully reliable environment perception technology.

DENSE will lead to the needed key improvements in sensor technology – resulting in a 24/7 all-weather sensor suite – consequently enhancing the safety of automated driving.

DENSE will identify the sensor-based safety requirements for automated driving under varying visibility conditions.

DENSE will specify and develop the necessary sensor technology and validate the resulting fused all-weather sensor suite.

DENSE will – additionally to the technical realisation of an all-weather sensor suite – consider necessary economical aspects to ensure a successful market introduction.
