A hardware-in-the-loop simulation platform for emulating large-scale intelligent transportation systems is presented. The platform embeds a real vehicle into SUMO, a microscopic road traffic simulation package. Emulations, consisting of the real vehicle, and potentially thousands of simulated vehicles, are run in real time. The platform provides an(More)
Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) harmonizes the cruising speed of vehicles during their journey and delivers a positive effect on fuel consumption and thus to CO2 emission. Since the weather in our hemisphere is subject to frequent change it has an influence on applicable speed profiles for CACC systems. In order to minimize the effect of various(More)
Modern multi-level indoor parking environments promise to alleviate the parking problems in modern cities but they are oftentimes stressful for human drivers. Increasing automation of the parking process has the potential for significant gains in efficiency, safety and comfort but requires highly accurate sensing and monitoring of the environment.

Media streaming in automotive environments is becoming more important with the proliferation of 3G/4G technologies and the general demand for consuming Internet content in cars. Especially the rising popularity of Music on Demand and Media Cloud Storage services pushes automotive manufactures efforts to provide decent music streaming capabilities in(More)
The conditions arising for the realization of visualization-oriented applications have recently changed. Especially in pervasive environments, where predominantly small and limited devices are present, the need for a distributed realization of relevant visualization processes is present. Due to the impact of user interaction at runtime, issued by e.g.(More)

High definition (HD) map data is a key feature to enable highly automated driving. With the advent of highly automated vehicles, car makers and map suppliers investigate new approaches to create and maintain HD maps by using on-board sensor data of series vehicles. While state-of-the-art-approaches focus on position and speed data analysis, the(More)
We present a technique for dangerous curve monitoring relying on the innovative concept of Safe Driving Map (SDM), a geo-referenced database with data about safe vehicle behavior in the monitored area, also considering different weather conditions. A vehicle's data are compared with the SDM reference and the driver is warned in case of danger. A road-side(More)
