      REMAS: Resource management system for highly automated urban transport


      Optimum combination of development resources at the digital test site in Dresden

      Automated driving in urban areas places considerable demands on many different areas, such as automotive, traffic technology, information and communication technology and computer science. It is necessary to pool the development activities of many players, working together to simulate and test solutions, in projects such as SYNCAR at the digital test site in Dresden.

      Important resources include development and simulation tools, connected or automated passenger cars and commercial vehicles, infrastructure components, test corridors, driving simulators, test and trial facilities as well as the respective data and documents. These resources and the corresponding services, processes and interfaces have highly heterogeneous functionalities and are often separated by large distances, time lags and organizational structures.

      Project objective

      Combining these resources in the best possible way is important in the interests of interdisciplinary pooling of development activities and validation activities taking place in test corridors. The REMAS consortium project aims to create the scientific and technical basis, including methods for integrating resources with a new simulation middleware for the support and real-time coordination of trips and driving maneuvers as well as monitoring critical system characteristics. An innovative information model is the core of a cooperation platform that is connected to the real traffic system, as well as to the tools, vehicles and components involved in the development process.

      In the REMAS project, IAV is dealing among others with the question of how further development of vehicle architectures can permit interaction among vehicles and between vehicles and the infrastructure. Another aspect focuses on the integration of simulation environments. New functions should go through simulation testing first before being analyzed in test vehicles. This is another area where IAV is contributing to REMAS. And finally, we are also looking at managing the large volumes of measurement and test data accumulated in other specific projects such as SYNCAR.

      REMAS aims to make system, method and technology know-how available for use and to permit further development for new products and services, thus helping to tap into the innovation potential of smart traffic systems for Saxony's economy.
