Embedded World: Fraunhofer ESK demonstrates development of a fault-tolerant electronics system for the automobiles of the future

Press Release, February 08, 2016

Highly-automated driving presumes that vehicles can rectify problems on their own until the driver is able to intervene. It also requires an electronics system that can guarantee the fault tolerance of critical functions. At the Embedded World being held in Nürnberg from February 23 to 25, Fraunhofer ESK will be demonstrating how this can be achieved through enhancements to the current AUTOSAR standard. ESK researchers will also introduce a tool for developing such automotive electronics systems (hall 4 / exhibit booth 460).

EU project SafeAdapt enters the test phase

Press Release, December 14, 2015

The construction of a test vehicle and driving simulator marks the test phase of the EU project SafeAdapt. Both platforms are slated to be operational by the middle of 2016 with the aim of evaluating the project under real conditions. The goal is to develop a new adaptive electric/electronics (E/E) software architecture for future electric vehicles that is capable of rectifying problems on its own while the vehicle is operating, thus leading to improved safety, reliability and cost efficiency.

Continental, Deutsche Telekom, Fraunhofer ESK, and Nokia Networks Showcase First Safety Applications at "digital A9 motorway test bed"

Press Release, November 09, 2015

Continental, Deutsche Telekom AG, Fraunhofer ESK, and Nokia Networks today demonstrated real-time communication between vehicles via the LTE cell network, in the presence of Federal Minister of Transport Alexander Dobrindt. This was a demonstration of the first project arising from the "Innovation Charter for the digital A9 motorway test bed".

Press Release: VDSL or G.fast? Research undertaken by Fraunhofer ESK and its partners shows how different broadband technologies can coexist without interference

Press Release, October 20, 2015

Together with industry partners, ESK researchers have demonstrated that VDLS and G.fast technologies can operate adjacently over an existing copper wire infrastructure, from the distribution point to the on-premise modem. Simulation analyses and tests revealed that these existing and future broadband technologies suffer no significant loss of quality.
