Awair: Software Solution for Monitoring Wireless Network Quality
With Awair, Fraunhofer ESK offers a software solution capable of capturing, visualizing and analyzing wireless spectrum occupancy. The software can identify authorized and unauthorized transmitters or sources of interference within a wireless network.
Description and Analysis of Networked Applications
As part of the DANA project, researchers at Fraunhofer ESK are working to create an open and expandable tool platform supporting the complete development process of automobile infotainment and driver assistance systems.
ezCar2X®: Streamlining Application Development for Networked Vehicles
Future vehicles will be able to share information in real-time. Therefore, Fraunhofer ESK developed the flexible ezCar2x® software framework, which provides the key components needed to rapidly create prototype applications for networking vehicles.
Because the number of ECUs for integrating new functions cannot be increased at will, new concepts are required that will allow more flexible mapping of functions to the ECUs. Therefore, Fraunhofer ESK researchers are actively working on self-adaptive E/E system concepts.
In a joint project, equipment manufacturer Holmer, telecommunications manufacturer Huawei and Fraunhofer ESK succeeded in transferring the predictive maintenance method to a fleet of highlycomplex harvesting machines.
Heterogeneous Networks for Real Time Multimodal Mobility
In project TIMON Fraunhofer ESK together with partners from seven other European countries aim to increase safety, sustainability, flexibility and efficiency of road transport systems by leveraging data from a diverse set of sources, i.e. open transport data, infrastructure sensors, data generated by drivers and vulnerable road users (VRUs).
Particularly in the field of industrial automation, wireless networks help companies add more flexibility to their day-to-day operations. Fraunhofer ESK develops energy-efficient, robust and reliable sensor networks.
The next generation of adaptive front lighting systems (AFS) attempts to “look into the future” by detecting potential danger spots and oncoming traffic early enough and illuminating the road accordingly.
Resource-Adaptive Mobile Assistance System for Complex Agriculture Machines
As part of the INVIA project, seven partners are working to design an innovative, cloud-based mobile assistance system for diagnosing and servicing complex agriculture machines and implement it in a prototype environment.
Safe Adaptive Software for Fully Electric Vehicles
Within the EU-funded project SafeAdapt, a consortium of 9 partners from six European countries is making innovative changes to the E/E architecture, which will reduce the complexity of the system and raise the cost and energy efficiency.
Electric vehicles should be flexible and adaptable. In the project Adaptive City Mobility 2 ESK researchers are developing an ICT infrastructure that enables individualized user interfaces and multimodal vehicle use.
