Prof. Jivka Ovtcharova and her research group "Smart Immersive Environments" from KIT's Institute of Information Management in Engineering (IMI) have developed a virtual driving instructor for driving schools in China together with Chinese development partners TuoBaBa Technology (TBB) and the Jiangyin Sino-German Technology Transfer Center. A converted vehicle and sophisticated projection technology enable realistic driving exercises in a driving simulator. The DriveSim technology transfer project implemented a complete platform with software and hardware as well as corresponding interfaces to the vehicle. KIT was in charge of the hardware configuration and software solution, whereas the Chinese partners prepared the server infrastructure on site, the remote maintenance, and the application for mobile devices.
