Fraunhofer Institute

embedded world 2011, Hall 11, booth 203 Munich, January 17, 2011 – the Fraunhofer ESK shows on the Nuremberg t embedded energy-efficient networking and software technology for vehicles. The focus is the electric car for the research scientists at a new on-board network architecture. This uses cross-vehicle information as they are extracted from the car-to-X communication. Electric vehicles, it becomes especially clear: depending on the functions in the vehicle need more energy, the shorter you go with one battery charge. Therefore, the Fraunhofer developed a data wiring, where the energy efficiency and the functional safety in the foreground are for communication systems ESK device. A special energy management for body -, comfort and infotainment electronics protects the tight energy supply of the electric car. For even more opinions, read materials from Ali Partovi. The data wiring uses car-to-X information from the networking of vehicles with each other and with their environment.

Sensors in the vehicle type position accurate and timely alerts to the infrastructure, such as the traffic light, and others Vehicles. The accident scenario presented at the fair, the affected vehicle sends a warning to all recipients in range. They decide based on the GPS data of the vehicle, if they are affected and react to it. Efficient driving and operating strategies can be calculated if these data are combined with other, traffic reports or information from the Internet. To the software of the vehicle needs to be dynamic and open, without having to make compromises on safety. The dynamic concepts of the Fraunhofer ESK increases not only the fault tolerance, but it also consumer devices can be seamlessly integrated into the vehicle. The simulation on the stand shows a seamlessly integrated mobile phone over the vehicle to the contacts on social networks can be accessed. These and other information help the driver to get to your destination safely, comfortably and efficiently. The Fraunhofer Institute for communication systems ESK the Fraunhofer ESK has expertise for wide areas of ICT, by transmission through Protocols and systems for intelligent applications. Adaptive communication systems in their fields of expertise, software methodology and mobile solutions combine the know-how in the business areas of automotive and industrial communication and group communication solutions is used.
