Cooperative mobility joint demo at ITS World Congress
The CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium (C2C-CC) and the Testfeld Telematik (TT) project conducted a joint driving demonstration on Cooperative Mobility at the ITS World Congress 2012 in Vienna, Austria. Specially equipped demo vehicles used so called car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure communication enabling real-time exchange of information about traffic conditions. Thus, drivers can immediately be warned of dangerous situations, are informed about current events and given advise on how to optimize driving. The joint demonstration visualized the feasibility of Cooperative Systems by presenting several use cases based on car-to-x technology, e.g. Road Works Warnings, In-vehicle Signage, Emergency Electronic Break Lights and Green Light Optimum Speed Advisory to name just a few. Main parts of the demonstration were powered by the EU-sponsored research project.
The joint demonstration involved 25 vehicles in total of both consortia including motorcycles and trucks and took place from 22nd to the 25th of October 2012. Interested visitors could register for a demo tour on public roads with real time traffic management data via the smartphone app “Congress Navigator”. In addition to the demo tours visitors could learn more about C2C-CC and TT at our exhibition stand at the Vienna exhibition center.
EICT coordinated the joint driving demonstration on behalf of the CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium. Coordination included technical project management as well as the whole demonstration organization.
