AIM in-vehicle platform for ITS services

Claus Kaschwich, Lars Wölfel


The application platform for intelligent mobility (AIM) is a large scale research infrastructure operated by the Institute of Transportation System of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in the city and region of Braunschweig. The in-vehicle platform for ITS services (ITS, Intelligent Transportation Systems) is an integral part of this large-scale research facility. The in-vehicle platform for ITS services can be seen as a modular kit which enables up to 50 vehicles to take part in a Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2X) communications in test sites like the V2X reference track in the city of Braunschweig. The in-vehicle platform for ITS services along with its integration into the AIM test field provides answers to a broad set of research questions in the Field of V2X communications on public roads. For example effects can be analyzed, which take place when vehicles with mixed equipped communication technologies are sharing one road.
