The first small part of the planned CERM research intersection is now installed and ready to use. Massive concrete bricks are chosen in order to realistically represent the damping characteristics of real world buildings in urban traffic. A wall with a height of of 4.8 m and a length of 4.0 m is installed at the ATC proving ground. The concept is highly flexible and allows to re-install the wall with various dimensions. First tests to assess the damping characteristics and to validate simulation models are carried out in the upcoming weeks. Additionally several sensor systems are attached to the implemented part of the research intersection in order to test their performance in urban scenarios.
VEHITS 2015, 1st International Conference on Vehicle Technology and Intelligent Transport Systems is regarded as one of the considerable events on Vehicles Technologies, Transportation Technologies, Electric Vehicles, Information Technology, Communication Technology and Control Technology areas.
We were happy to present the CERM approach at the conference in Lisboa at the Marriott Hotel. Teresa Schmidt presented her paper "Safety first? V2X – Perceived benefits, barriers and trade-offs of automated driving" and was happy to discuss the topic with research colleagues from all around the world. Hopefully we will see each other next time in Rome, 2016.
CERM was guest on Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona. The team of CERM presented the research opportunities for vehicle systems based on vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication (V2X) and discussed several opportunities. Read more here.
The new website of CERM goes online. Explore the motivation behind the center, the chosen approach and results as they are generated on the following pages. As we are very interested in an extensive exchange with the research community, industrial designers and interested persons, please feel free to get in touch with us any time.
A summary of CERM also gives the first flyer.
