Kopernikus Automotive is a German start-up developing and designing retro-installation solutions, with the aim of converting recent production vehicles into autonomous level 3 vehicles. The company contacted the IVI to help it develop a retrofit kit compatible with the transversal modular platform (MQB). The first results were so conclusive that the company commissioned an IVI engineer to continue the project in Berlin. During this mandate, we worked to integrate a semi-autonomous driving system. Subsequently, Kopernikus asked the IVI to continue its work by completing the by-wire reverse-engineering of the MQB platform.
