The autonomous Driving Darmstadt for Students Project (aDDa) enables students to develop and apply algorithms for fully automatic driving functions. In addition to conventional algorithms, driving functions learning from operating data and experience are of particular interest.

The long-term goal of aDDa is the development of the autonomous vehicle for use on public roads. Within the aDDa project, students not only learn to develop new functions for autonomous cars, but also get to know the entire process of system development, implementation and validation.


The aim of the project is to provide a modular vehicle platform across all subject areas and study courses at the TU Darmstadt.


The human-centered design process (DIN EN ISO 9241-210) is used in the development of human-machine interfaces (HMI) for the autonomous vehicle.
