The team, consisting of Dr. Uwe Franke, Dr. Stefan Gehrig und Dr. Clemens Rabe, were the winners of the Beckurts Prize. We express our warmest congratulations to the prizewinners! The 6D-Vision, developed by researchers from Daimler, enables the distance and the movement of objects to be measured. The new stereo camera makes it possible to detect cars or pedestrians in the immediate vicinity. If there is a danger of collision, the braking force increases right up to the point in which emergency braking is performed, depending on the situation.

In mid-November 2012, Daimler announced that the 6D-Vision will be used in the next generation of the S-Class from 2013.

The Deutsche Zukunftspreis is the most important national award for technical innovation in Germany. It is awarded annually by the Federal President. As well as two other teams, the 6D-Vision team, consisting of Dr Uwe Franke, Dr Stefan Gehrig and Dr Clemens Rabe, was nominated in 2011 for the “6D-Vision – Recognizing dangers faster than human beings” project.

The new 12/13 timetable brought major changes for public transport users in the Canton of Zug: Ring zones were converted into area zone systems. This took place as part of the integration into the ITV Z-Pass Corridor Zug/Schwyz. From the logistical point of view, this meant that a range of completely new products, as well as new user interfaces had to be activated across 150 systems during just one night.

The automated ‘Big Bang’ switch worked perfectly thanks to intensive tests in the run-up. The SCS team only needed to intervene via remote access on one single ticket vending machine during the night.

The new system not only makes our customers happy but also makes us – the developers – proud!
