VSimRTI Workshop

Engineering Smart Mobility

3rd VSimRTI Workshop 2013

26 April 2013, Fraunhofer Forum, Berlin.

Connecting eMobility and cooperative ITS solutions

In Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems, various aspects have to be considered: Vehicles and drivers have the opportunity to exchange a huge amount of information about the current traffic situation via cellular and ad-hoc networks. Smartphone and in-vehicle apps use the received information to help the drivers to optimize their routes and to increase safety of all traffic participants. However, one further important aspect influences the behaviour in cooperative transportation systems: the increasing number of electric vehicles.

Simulation architectures such as VSimRTI are prepared to analyse all aspects and influences appearing in the new transportation systems. For this purpose, different simulators modelling vehicle traffic, communication via cellular and ad-hoc networks, smartphone and in-vehicle applications, user behaviour, and the electrical grid are coupled together to one overall simulation environment.

The VSimRTI workshop provides an insight of how to setup and run simulations as well as discussions of state of the art methods and tools for the assessment of novel solutions for Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems.

The program features industry and research experts presenting their success stories and newest research results and an introduction to the latest features of our VSimRTI simulation environment.
