Sichere Intelligente Mobilišt – Testfeld Deutschland
Over the last years, Car to Car Communication has become
an important field of research for car manufacturers as well as for
academical institutions. This technology is considered extremely important
and promising: it enables drivers to benefit from applications that
improve the efficiency as well as the safety of vehicular traffic by wireless
communication, thus reducing the number and severity
To combine knowledge and resources, many companies and research facilities
have jointly founded the
Car to Car Communication Consortium
(C2C-CC) that focuses on this field of research. The Heinrich-Heine-University is a member of this
consortium and actively participates in different working groups.
Furthermore, in November 2008 the "Sichere
Intelligente Mobilitšt – Testfeld Deutschland"
(simTD) project has been
In the course of this project, a technology for the wireless
communication between vehicles as well as an intelligent traffic infrastructure
will be developed and tested within a large field operational
test in the area of Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
The computer networks research group at the Heinrich-Heine-University participates in
SIM-TD as a subcontractor of the Volkswagen AG, one of the projects' industry partners.
We work closely together with the VW department of Driver Information Systems and
contribute our knowledge in the areas of field operational testing, algorithm development and
simulation of Car to Car Communication systems.
