NFF, the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen, was founded by a joint effort of the federal state government of Lower Saxony, the Volkswagen AG and the Technische Universität Braunschweig. The establishment of the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen aims at developing new technologies and usage scenarios for ensuring individual mobility requirements in metropolitan areas. This is achieved by a new research concept providing the opportunity for interdisciplinary cooperation among the Technische Universität Braunschweig, further regional research facilities and the automotive industry.

Query-response geocast for vehicular crowd sensing

Timpner, Julian and Wolf, Lars Ad Hoc Networks Modern vehicles are essentially mobile sensor platforms collecting a vast amount of information, which can be shared in vehicular ad hoc networks. A prime example of a resulting vehicular crowd sensing application might be the search for a parking spot in a specific geographic area. The interested

Trustworthy Parking Communities: Helping Your Neighbor to Find a Space

Timpner, Julian and Schürmann, Dominik and Wolf, Lars IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing Cooperation between vehicles facilitates traffic management, road safety and infotainment applications. Cooperation, however, requires trust in the validity of the received information. In this paper, we tackle the challenge of securely exchanging parking spot availability information. Trust is crucial in

k-Stacks: High-Density Valet Parking for Automated Vehicles

Timpner, Julian and Friedrichs, Stephan and van Balen, Johannes and Wolf, Lars Intelligent Vehicles Symposium (IV) Automated valet parking not only improves driving comfort, but can have a considerable impact on the urban land- scape by reducing the required parking space. We present the first study of parking space optimization for automated valet parking with

Vehicular Communications in the V-Charge Project

Julian Timpner, Stephan Rottmann, and Lars Wolf 2nd GI/ITG KuVS Fachgespräch Inter-Vehicle Communication (FG-IVC 2014) Future requirements for drastic reduction of CO2 production and energy consumption will lead to significant changes in the way we see mobility in the years to come. However, the automotive industry has identified significant barriers to the adoption of electric

Demo: Automated Valet Parking and Charging

Stephan Rottmann, Julian Timpner, and Lars Wolf IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC) 2014 A model electric vehicle performing automated valet parking and charging is demonstrated. The vehicle’s missions are transmitted using WLAN based vehicle-to-infrastructure communications by a server back-end which has been developed in the EU FP7 project V-Charge. @inproceedings{Rottmann:VNC:14, address = {Paderborn, Germany}, doi

Breadcrumb Routing: Query-Reponse Geocast for Mobile Originators in Vehicular Networks

Julian Timpner, Mario Wozenilek, and Lars Wolf IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC) 2014 Vehicular ad hoc networks allow connected vehicles to exchange and share information in order to improve traffic efficiency and safety as well as to provide infotainment functions. In order to cope with the challenging network conditions of the vehicular domain (e.g., intermittent

Design and Evaluation of Charging Station Scheduling Strategies for Electric Vehicles

Julian Timpner and Lars C. Wolf IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems (Journal) Electric vehicles (EVs) still have relatively long and frequent charging cycles. Moreover, charging resources are typically limited and must therefore be used efficiently. The V-Charge project has the vision to provide a solution by combining autonomous valet parking with e-mobility, introducing improved

Estimation of Vehicular Connectivity in Autonomous Parking Scenarios

Tobias Pögel, Julian Timpner, Stephan Rottmann and Lars C. Wolf PIK – Praxis der Informationsverarbeitung und Kommunikation (Journal) In this paper different parking scenarios for autonomous vehicles are considered. For control and monitoring purposes reliable Wi–Fi-based communication between the vehicles and a back-end is needed. It must be ensured that potential QoS requirements of different

Secure Smartphone-based Registration and Key Deployment for Vehicle-to-Cloud Communications

Julian Timpner, Domink Schürmann, and Lars Wolf ACM Workshop on Security, Privacy and Dependability for Cyber Vehicles (CyCAR ’13) Intelligent Transportation Systems that rely on Vehicle-to- Cloud communications are emerging. Of particular inter- est to us is the question how drivers can securely register their vehicle with cloud services and deploy keys for secur- ing
