Car-to-X communication: Experimental tools from Fraunhofer FOKUS demonstrate their practical application in the largest field test to date

News from June 20, 2013

After several years of research & development and the largest field test for co-operative driving to date, the final presentation for the project simTD (Safe Intelligent Mobility – Test Field Germany) took place today at the exhibition center in Frankfurt am Main.

After several years of research & development and the largest field test for co-operative driving to date, the final presentation for the project simTD (Safe Intelligent Mobility – Test Field Germany) took place today at the exhibition center in Frankfurt am Main. A key result of the project: Car-to-X communication enables information to be transferred from vehicles to the traffic control center and vice versa, thus leading to improved knowledge of traffic conditions and faster detection of traffic-related events. Fraunhofer FOKUS assisted the project consortium with the storage and further processing of the high volume of measurement data, as well as with the specification, implementation and supervision of the test scenarios and with quality assurance for the installed hardware and software components.
