Intelligent, GNSS-based wrong-way driver warning system to increase traffic safety on highways
Ghosthunter III is a joint project of NavCert, the University of the Federal Armed Forces Munich and the University of Stuttgart. The goal is to develop an app for Android smartphones to reliably detect ghost drivers on highways and their interchanges at an early stage using GNSS and digital maps. In this way, both the wrong-way drivers themselves and other road users in the vicinity can be warned in time. Finally, the app including the server infrastructure will be prototypically certified by NavCert for its functionality.
Ghosthunter started as a research project in 2015 between the University of the Federal Armed Forces Munich and the University of Stuttgart. After that, there was a continuation as Ghosthunter II. In both projects, NavCert was involved as a subcontractor of the Uni BW. Now the final phase Ghosthunter III starts and this time NavCert is an essential project partner and as such performs the prototypical certification.
