Connectivity Box coordinates communication between driver and autonomous driving control

Preh Car Connect showcases innovation at the ASAM International Conference

Dresden. Saxony is an important location for the development and design of future mobility. Numerous Saxon companies and research institutions cooperate in various research and development projects related to safe networked and automated driving. The projects are concentrated in the state initiative "Synchronous Mobility 2023". Preh Car Connect is involved in several of these pioneering projects for autonomous driving and is there with their innovative developments such as the Connectivity Box for V2X communication (Vehicle to X). As a member of the state initiative, Preh Car Connect presented this innovation to an international expert audience on December 10 and 11, 2019 at the ASAM International Conference in Dresden.

The fourth ASAM International Conference was held under the motto "Autonomous Driving –   Standardized Virtual Development as a Key to Future Mobility". The conference focused on the interaction between driver and vehicle. Another focus was the consideration of the environment in autonomous driving and the profound change in the "classic" test methods. In the latter two, the focus was on the role of process integration and automation as well as the functional validation and quality assurance play in the development of autonomous vehicles.

As a practical application example, the participants were shown the cooperative lane change between a highly automated and a conventional vehicle. A standardized coordination between the human driver and the autonomous driving control is necessary for a smooth lane change. An important contribution to support this maneuver between man and machine over V2X communication provides Preh Car Connect using the specially developed and deeply integrated telematics unit "Connectivity Box".

ASAM stands for “Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems”. It is an association of globally operating vehicle manufacturers, suppliers and engineering service providers in the automotive industry. The association coordinates the development of technical standards. These are developed in project groups by experts from member companies. The annual ASAM International Conference is a platform for national and international experts from politics, research and industry. The latest trends and technologies in the areas of autonomous driving and future driver assistance systems are discussed here.
