ezCar2x®: Streamlined Development of Networked Vehicle Applications

Car2X communication is making a major contribution to improved traffic safety and efficiency while enabling a broad range of innovative services:

  • Cooperative driver assistance systems: improved driving comfort and safety through automated danger warnings, by expanding the driver‘s field of view (cooperative perception) and cooperative driving manoeuvres (e.g. platooning)
  • „„Intelligent traffic systems: improved traffic safety through personalized routing, green wave assistance and precise tracking of the traffic situation

With the flexible ezCar2x® software framework the Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS (former Fraunhofer ESK) provides the key components needed to rapidly create prototype applications for networking vehicles.
