Testfeld Telematik

Testfeld Telematik has been successfully finished after 32 months of intense work in November 2013. Following the follow-up project ECo-AT started by the end of 2013.

The main project tasks of Testfeld Telematik have been the development, operation and demonstration of cooperative services and systems within the framework of a test field for cooperative services in the greater Vienna area. Testfeld Telematik was focused spatial and technical on the high-ranking road network including public transport and lower-ranking road network, especially for urban deployment of cooperative services (e.g. distribution of in-vehicle information of traffic lights).

A special challange has been the selection of cooperative applications, which can be made perceptible for end users by using up-to-date technical possibilities within the framework of the test field. A special challange has been the task of receiving and displaying the distributed applications inside vehicles via integrated vehicle systems as well as refitting platforms and mobile devices and the coordination of up to 64 parties during the ITS World Congress 2012 in Vienna. The joint demonstration of cooperative services in a real traffic situation and in cooperation with car industry during the ITS World Congress 2012 in Vienna has been a first highlight of Testfeld Telematik which had the effect of worldwide visibility of Austrian efforts and competence relating cooperative services and systems.

Testing and evaluating the realised cooperative services within the framework of the field tests, including research on user acceptance and traffic impact of the applications, has been a major aspect of the consortium efforts. An independent research team has been charged by BMVIT with result analysis of Testfeld Telematik.

It can be noted that proof of technical feasibility of cooperative services based on Austrian know-how was absolutely successful. Particularly potentials for the technical optimisation of worldwide standards of cooperative services have been identified and introduced to the standardisation comittees (ETSI, CEN). So, an essential contribution in solving research aspects of cooperative services and systems has been realised within Testfeld Telematik.
