Car-to-x communication: towards safe, intelligent mobility.

Car-to-x communication: towards safe, intelligent mobility.

Notice traffic blocks before they are visible. Recognise risky situations before they get out of hand. Reach your destination fast, safe and relaxed. This vision of safe and intelligent mobility motivates our research project simTD. The vision can be made real with the help of electronically connected vehicles and infrastructure: car-to-x communication. 


Car-to-x communication allows information exchange both between vehicles and between road users and traffic control centres. Following and oncoming road users will be notified of potentially dangerous situations to enable them to react on time and appropriately.

Car-to-x communication allows transmitting anonymised traffic information to the traffic control centres. These can then operate roadside infrastructure more adequately and issue reliable traffic development forecasts.


Such information can then support road users in adapting their routes and allow them to reach their destinations fast, comfortable and safe.
