Project period: 10.2018 – 12.2020
Automatic vehicle emergency call - eCall
Improvements to existing standards in conjunction with recommendations for the safe use of eCall systems
HeERO addressed the pan-European in-vehicle emergency call service "eCall", which is based on the pan-European emergency number 112. During the three-year project period (2011-2013), the HeERO consortium from nine European countries launched the harmonized, interoperable 112-based emergency call system (E112). In 2013, a new consortium consisting of 6 countries launched the HeERO II project. NavCert was project manager for the overall evaluation in both projects. This included performing tests under real conditions and validating against the common European eCall standards established by European standardization bodies. The result was a wide range of improvements to existing standards in conjunction with recommendations for the safe use of eCall systems.
In I_HeERO, the necessary control center infrastructure has been prepared to ensure the eCall service and the compatibility with the European-wide introduction of eCall in September 2017. NavCert focus was on the definition and implementation of a conformity assessment of all control centers. All control centers were legally committed to this conformity assessment, provided that they process emergency calls based on 112.
Subproject of the "Schaufenster Elektromobilität Niedersachsen"
Data protection compliant information and data platform providing information of interest to other sub-projects or third parties
ICT Services provides inter-transport, interregional services to users of electric mobility and providers of regional mobility services. In addition, it provides an information and data platform that provides information of general interest to other subprojects or third parties (eg statistics on the use of vehicles and loading points).
GNSS supported driver assistance systems
In FAMOS, three location-based driver assistance applications were examined: entry and exit assistant, green driving and center of gravity warning system. These were prototypically realized on a test platform. Our focus was on the applicability of emerging automotive standards to ISO 26262, validation of development and identification of a certification scheme.
In the GENEVA project, proactive and scalable assistance systems were developed that are specially adapted to the complex situation in city traffic. These assistance systems increase and improve traffic safety in the urban area for all road users. Our focus was on the applicability of emerging automotive standards to ISO 26262, validation of development and identification of a certification scheme.
