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.

 

Future Vehicle Software Architectures

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.

 

Harvesters Joining the Internet of Things

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).

 

Highly-Robust, Wireless Communication Components for Industrial Applications

In the HODRIAN project, Fraunhofer ESK develops a cognitive frequency-hopping approach based on 3 fundamental features: interference detection, channel quality estimation and frequency hopping.

 

I4.0 ComLab Test Environment

I4.0 ComLab offers the possibility to test your Industry 4.0 applications in a professional test environment.

 

Intelligent and Reliable Sensor Networks

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.

 

Predictive Front Lighting

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.

 

Reliable Adaptive Wireless Communication with Cognitive Radio

The goal of the CAROUSAL project is to develop a prototype to prove the enhanced efficiency and reliability in the use of the available radio spectrum with cognitive radio.

 

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.

 

Self-Describing Adaptive Software

Fraunhofer ESK develops a new method and tool chain for the development of adaptive embedded software systems.

 

Shared E-Mobility

A group of Fraunhofer institutes that includes ESK, FOKUS, IAO, IIS ISE and IVI are examining how to establish the shared use of e-mobility in metropolitan areas.

 

Software Defined Car

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.

 

Wireless Troubleshooting

Fraunhofer ESK helps customers detect the causes of wireless network disruptions. This includes on-site analyses with measurements to detect possible sources of interference or to identify overlapping frequency ranges.
