Interdisciplinary International Project on Autonomous Systems



We offer the unique opportunity to work on an interesting/fascinating topic and to develop future skills in an international interdisciplinary project. As member of an interdisciplinary team (which will be put to together by us, see below)

  • participate in an international symposium on
    autonomous driving to be held in Constance on
    10 July 2024,
  • identify and define a topic to be pursued by your
    team autonomously,
  • present your results at the final seminar on 18
    October 2024.

This means, the project runs from 10 July to 18 October 2024. We as instructors accompany and coach the teams during this process but give and expect autonomy of you as a team to work on a topic of autonomous systems.


Train most relevant future skills by

  • setting topics and goals autonomously,
  • working in an unknown and diverse team productively,
  • learning the necessary contents self-reliably,
  • pursuing and working self-responsibly,
  • and delivering high-quality results nonetheless.


All students of the HTWG – independently of study program or study level. The intention is to learn to contribute in an interdisciplinary way to a team with a diverse range of skills. Anyone can contribute to this!


  • Two ECTS (ungraded) or three ECTS (graded).
  • The project may be credited as elective, studium generale, or project. Ask those responsible for your degree program what options are available in your curriculum.


Contact one of us (Prof. Basler MA, Prof. Birkhölzer EI, or Prof. Eicher MA), register for the Moodle course “Interdisciplinary International Project on Autonomous Systems” which you find in the catalogue “Zusatzangebote”, and participate in the introduction on 7 June 2024 at 9:45 (room will be announced in the Moodle course). There, we will answer all remaining questions.

We need a binding registration no later than 1 july 2024 so that we can put together the teams, which will be done by us and randomly to ensure interdisciplinarity.
