Motorway scenario: safe and fast on the motorway.

In order to develop a significant and transferable scenario on Germany's motorways, average route profiles were selected for the region. Those involve the A5 motorway between the Bad Nauheim junction and Westkreuz Frankfurt as well as several motorways surrounding the city of Frankfurt. The region was divided into two parts with different densities of ITS Roadside Stations.

The research focus for the motorway scenario – apart from monitoring the traffic situation and identifying traffic events – is on traffic forecast. Research will also work on a construction site information system and navigation as well as on end of traffic jam alert, traffic sign assistance and traffic information and route deviation management.
