Successful DOCT kick-off in Munich
Berlin, July 2022 – At the first consortium meeting and project kick-off on July 5 and 6, 2022, the responsible representatives of the eight consortium partners gathered at Rohde und Schwarz in Munich to start the DOCT (Digital OTA Connectivity Twin) research project.
Together with the consortium leader Mercedes-Benz and the project sponsor TÜV Rheinland Consulting GmbH, the framework conditions and objectives of the project, funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, were presented, thus setting the course for a successful project progress. On the second day, the consortium partners presented their seven work packages and clarified fundamental questions and modalities for the joint research work.
The DOCT (Digital OTA Connectivity Twin) project will run for a period of 36 months. The objective of the project is to significantly increase the level of system assurance and accelerate the development of connectivity systems. Simultaneously used automated driving and entertainment applications are placing increasingly complex demands on the modern connectivity system. Creating a digital development environment for secure and robust connectivity systems makes it possible to reduce costs and save resources. At the same time, the approach leads to more safety in road traffic and prepares the standardization of connectivity system tests. Finally yet importantly, Germany as a business location also benefits by accelerating transformational innovations in the connectivity sector.
More information on the project will soon be available on the official website.
