Upgrade of Emergency Telephones to V2I

Communication at Motorways The challenge of the ANIKA project was the combination of existing infrastructure with innovative V2X technologies. Through the synergy arising from the two systems it may be possible that the new V2X technology, which shall be installed in new vehicle types ex works from 2015 on, will quickly come into operation. Focus of NavCert was identification of applicable standards as guidance for development and final validation.

OpenCarData (OCD)

The OCD project developed a unique emission monitoring and report tool contributing to de-carbonization of our fleet. For the first time a certification provided visibility of validation for underlying measurements demonstrating potential reduction in real world user tests and awareness of driving behavior. NavCert focus was the certification of developed product based on voluntary test plan with a test mark highlighting key product features, integrity, accuracy, data privacy/security. Main challenge in the project was the set-up of the measurements to generate objective reference data.

Development of position-based driver assistance applications – Galileo for Future AutoMOtive Systems

In FAMOS three localization- based driving assistance applications were examined: Assistant for pulling in and out of traffic, Green driving, and Alerting of traffic accident black spots. These were also prototypically realized on an experimental platform. Our focus was the applicability of the new emerging automotive standards ISO 26262, validation of development and identification of a certification scheme

Galileo / EGNOS Enhanced Driver Assistance

Within the GENEVA project, proactive and scalable assistant systems that are adapted specifically to complex situations in city traffic have been developed. The key to such assistant systems for city traffic is the safe and dependable recognition of other road users. Our focus was the applicability of the new emerging automotive standards ISO 26262, validation of development and identification of a certification scheme

Foster ITS

Within the Foster project the First Operational, Secured and Trusted galilEo Receiver for ITS is developed. It will support Galileo OS Authentication and offer robustness due to algorithms and integrated hardware to achieve an utmost level of security. Our focus is the identification of required standards assuring marketability in automotive context like ISO 26262. In addition NavCert develops a private test program for validation and prototypical certification fo the receiver.

ICT Services – Project 3.2 in the electric mobility showcase of Niedersachsen

ICT Services provides a variety of interoperable and networked services to the different showcase subprojects with their existing infrastructure (e.g. charging stations) and mobility services (e.g. electric cars or pedelecs). These intelligent ICT solutions are the basis for a user-friendly and meaningful use of electric mobility (e.g. cross-modal routing).

 eCall Projects

HeERO – Pan-European project for eCall deployment pilots

In HeERO I for three years nine European countries evaluated pros and cons for a successful deployment of the pan European eCall to an interoperable and harmonized in-vehicle emergency call system. In 2013, 6 new countries formed a consortium working on HeERO II. NavCert was focused as WP leader for overall evaluation in both projects. Part of this activity was the testing and validating the common European eCall standards defined and approved by the European Standardization Bodies in real conditions. A variety of improvements to the existing standards was the result together with recommendations to reduce risk and threats on eCall deployment.

In I_HeERO the preparation of  the necessary PSAP infrastructure to realize Pan-European eCall takes place to achieve service offering and interoperability by September 2017. In addition extension of eCall to new user classes like HGV, long distance buses and coaches and powered two wheeled vehicles is prepared. NavCert is focusing on definition and performance of PSAP Conformity Assessments, which is a legal obligation for all PSAP handling eCall based on 112.

The actual emergency systems are based on old-fashioned telecommunication technologies that cannot cope with the new IP-based services that the European citizens use every day. In the project EMYNOS todays limitations are analyzed and solutions identified:

  • No interconnection among the PSAPs (Public Safety Answering Points): this, unfortunately, limits the transfer of calls in case of congestion and network outage
  • Media limitation: currently only voice calls and sometimes SMS are accepted
  • No advanced features: such as caller location

The EMYNOS project will design and develop a common Next Generation emergency management platform that can manage both extreme emergency situations such as natural disasters and terrorist attacks as well as usual emergency situations such as calls to ambulance and police. NavCert will focus on all aspects necessary to transfer the pan European eCall from circuit switched GSM networks to packet switched next gen like 5G reducing limits amount of emergency data to be sent and restrictions on real time updates.
