Projects

 

Cloud-Based Production Controls

In the Cloud-based Industrial Services (CICS) project the ESK researchers shape the production steering to be interoperable and flexible, by transferring part of it into the cloud.

 

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.

 

Enhanced Traffic Safety with LTE and Mobile Edge Computing

n the project Car2MEC, Fraunhofer ESK is working to develop concepts to improve connectivity especially for delay-sensitive traffic safety applications.

 

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).

 

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.

 

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.
