Automated and connected vehicles communicate with both infrastructure and other vehicles. However, there are no complete toolchains to co-design internal and external communication. The project creates tools for the next generation of complex, heterogeneous vehicle networks for time-critical applications.
Aim and goal
The project will develop a software tool set that provides time-critical, predictable and reliable communication for automotive applications in heterogeneous systems and networks, including wireless networks. The tool set will allow the user to design, develop and evaluate time-critical applications such as advanced safety systems and autonomous vehicles. This will put high requirements on both in-vehicle infrastructure, as well as vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure utilizing the next generation of mobile networks for Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS).
Absence of comprehensive framework makes network and system design time-consuming and error-prone, thus severely limiting the complexity of deployed applications. New tools and framework are needed to enable the next generation of C-ITS applications.
The project develops algorithms, communication protocols and software tools to that support time-critical communication for automotive applications to enable e.g. automated driving and real-time transfer of video data for active security. Viability of the tools is demonstrated through prototype implementation.
The project opens up possibilities for completely new time-critical applications in connected and automated vehicles that require high-bandwidth communication.
