CONVERGE (COmmunication Network VEhicle Road Global Extension) is a research initiative that was started in September 2012.
Cooperative systems and application for smart traffic will be realised in an extensible and scalable structure, oriented at the example of the internet. Open standards and interoperability will enable a provider, authority and country spanning system realisation. Therefore, a new, open communication, services and organisation architecture will be developed, which reflects the state of the art in communication technologies and IT security.
Starting from the existing development and expertise in the area of security of Vehicle-2-X systems, Fraunhofer FOKUS will contribute to a multimodal security solution. This implies that the implemented effective security solution will be available on all communication technologies used within the project (ITS G5, 2G/3G/LTE, Wi-Fi) to ensure authenticity, integrity and confidentiality for the exchange of sensitive data. This work was funded within the project CONVERGE by the German Federal Ministries of Education and Research as well as Economics and Technology.
