CAR 2 CAR Demonstration

without comments

Dudenhofen, Germany, 10/22/08 – In the course of its second international forum the CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium, in short C2C-CC, has demonstrated manufacturer spanning applications of the Car-to-X-Communication system independent of vehicle-type to a worldwide public for the first time ever.

Results from related EU projects developing cooperative systems technology will be incorporate into future C2C-CC demonstrations as projects results become available. The BroadBit-contributed GeoNet project is a major anticipated building block, providing multi-hop geo-networked information delivery and its IPv6 integration.

With driving demonstrations at the testing areas of the Adam Opel GmbH cars, trucks and motorbikes of the manufacturers involved exemplify traffic situations where the Car-to-X-Communication system can particularly assist the driver, such as at urban crossroads with line-of-sight obstruction where motorbikes, emergency vehicles are approaching Even at construction sites and in situations involving breakdown vans, Car-to-X-Communications is very effective. In lectures and workgroups the participants of the meeting collectively discuss and elaborate the future of Car-to-X-Communication systems.

The world premier will be supported technically by ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) who will evaluate the specifications and scenarios used during the interoperability demonstrations in relation to their potential for future use in standardization.

The networked car: boosting early IPv6 adoption

Next generation of vehicles will be networked in order to exchange safety, non-safety and infotainment information with other vehicles, the roadside and peers in the Internet. Internet-based communications will rely on IPv6, the new version of the Internet Protocol, which is already in the product line of major vendors (networking devices and operating systems) and deployed in backbones (GEANT, OpenTransit,…)

IPv6 is already taking momentum in the automobile sector as could it be witnessed by the CVIS and GeoNet European projects and standardization activities by ISO TC204 WG16 (CALM architecture), ETSI, and the Car-to-Car Communication Consortium (C2C-CC).

Following the European Commission’s IPv6 action plan issued in May 2008, the objective of the session is to discuss how IPv6 know-how could be best developed in Europe.

The session will gather speakers from:
The GeoNet project
The CVIS project
European Commission

Cooperative Vehicle Infrastructure Systems Video

without comments

We’ve created a 3D video presentation showing deployment result of vehicular communications systems. The scope includes concept study on deployment of vehicular communications technology and expert interviews. The result has been presented at the 2006 Intelligent Transportation Systems world congress.

Metropolitan Wireless Data Association

without comments

The Metropolitan Wireless Data Association aims to promote most efficient utilization of the infrastructure for urban broadband wireless coverage. For this purpose the association describes requirements and standards that it recommends to be implemented, and publishes their tested SW implementation baseline.

Compatibility with results of cooperative transportation/vehicle development projects, such as CVIS and Car2Car Communication Consortium is ensured. To guide financiers of urban wireless infrastructure, a list of products implementing identified requirements is maintained.
