  • Local cloud computing (Multi-access Edge Computing – MEC) is a key enabling technology for connected driving, specifically for driving safety. It is vitally important that the industries involved in connected driving work closely together to turn the concepts into sustainable business for all parties involved. These are the main conclusions of the Car2MEC project after two years of intensive trialing and testing by Continental, Deutsche Telekom, Fraunhofer ESK, MHP and Nokia on the A9 motorway digital test track in Germany.

    Dependable communication improves autonomous vehicle systems

    Press Release / 5.9.2018

    Dependable communication between vehicles is a basic prerequisite for connected and automated driving. To address this issue, Fraunhofer ESK developed a leading-edge approach: Quality of Service monitoring and prediction that makes wireless vehicle-to-vehicle communication foreseeable, and thus dependable. Fraunhofer ESK will introduce its approach during the 2018 ITS World Congress in Copenhagen from September 17 to 21 (hall C3, exhibit booth 054).

  • During a series of drive tests on the A9 motorway digital test track in Germany, Deutsche Telekom, Fraunhofer ESK, Hexagon and Nokia have achieved a milestone on the path to safe automated driving. The companies achieved a positioning accuracy for vehicles in the range of centimeters, demonstrating the effectiveness of their combined technologies.

  • The foundation of connected autonomous driving is reliable and predictable real-time communications. With its adaptive hybrid ITS stack for Car2X communication, Fraunhofer ESK is improving the reliability of the communication between the traffic participants and simplifying the seamless integration of new technologies. Fraunhofer ESK's approach merges various technologies such as ad hoc and mobile wireless and deploys the right technology depending on the situation.

    Driver assistance systems, such as for parking or automated distance control, are standard features in nearly automobile today. They simplify driving and increase safety. Before taking the next step to safe automated driving, vehicles must be capable of reliably sharing information. At the ITS European Congress on June 6-9 in Glasgow (exhibit booth D60), Fraunhofer ESK will be demonstrating how and with what technologies the communication between driver assistance systems can be safeguarded.

    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).

    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 archi-tecture 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.

  • Munich, 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".
