Project Duration: 1. January 2009 - 30. September 2009

During the SIM-TD project at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) the so called Car-2-X-Communication has been researched and implemented. To goal was evaluate it potential for a secure and intelligent mobility. The project has been conducted in cooperation with the following partners: Audi AG, BMW AG, Daimler AG, Ford Forschungszentrum Aachen GmbH, Adam Opel AG, Volkswagen AG, Robert Bosch GmbH, Continental Teves AG & Co. oHG, Deutsche Telekom AG, Frauenhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung Angewandter Forschung e.V., Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität München, Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft des Saarlandes, Universität Würzburg, Hessen Mobil - Straßen und Verkehrsmanagement und Stadt Frankfurt am Main. Our work covered:

  1. Conducting a comprehensive psychological study about the car driver’s attention in regard to warnings, which are displayed in different modalities.
  2. Based on that study, multiple rules and meta-rules have been defined, which determine how to show important information to the driver within a car, such that the information is perceived quickly.
  3. Using these rules, a context- and rule-based Human-Machine-Interaction-System (HMI-System) has been developed, which is used for the interaction of the passengers. One of the goals of the system has been to priorize the incoming messages autonomously and show them by using the most suitable modal (graphical and/or verbal).
  4. Realising a graphical user interface for the presentation of the system-goals.
  5. For a better communication of the different components, which have been realised by our cooperating partners, all software units have been implemented as OSGi-Bundles.
  6. Integrating the developed components of the DFKI into a car for demonstrations
