Spannender Bericht über das Projekt Artemis bei Audi und wie sich der Ansatz von einem normalen Fahrzeugprojekt unterscheidet.
After a stint working on Apple’s autonomous cars, Hitzinger now heads up Volkswagen’s “Project Artemis”, named after the Ancient Greek goddess of hunting, with the aim of chasing down electric car pioneer Tesla.“At Porsche, I always thought of a vehicle as a comprehensive system. This is a very important point. It is what Tesla does well,” he explained in a video interview.The task of building a car has gotten more complex with the advent of electric and autonomous driving technologies, forcing new battery-driven powertrains to compete for electricity with camera, radar, and lidar sensors, plus infotainment systems.Rather than stitching together separately designed systems, Artemis wants to create something new and seamlessly integrated, from the ground up, Hitzinger told Reuters.“The idea behind Artemis is to have a comprehensive understanding of the vehicle. When something is optimised, this has knock-on effects and these need to be understood.”Allocating processing power between propulsion, automated driving and infotainment systems such as satellite navigation and music streaming is a key challenge, he said.But it’s not the only one.“The human-machine interface, the interior design, the exterior design, aerodynamics and the range are all interconnected. If I modify something on the exterior, it will impact the aerodynamics and the efficiency,” Hitzinger said.
