Pro²Future: Reliable wireless communication

Cars are becoming more intelligent every day. They are being fitted with more and more cognitive applications. Cognitive means that they are able to react autonomously to particular situations on the basis of information and knowledge. For this, reliable communication between numerous components is of crucial importance. The differences found in a car’s surroundings are considerable. Communication systems are therefore necessary that can be adapted perfectly and easily to the circumstances the vehicle finds itself in. To this end, Pro²Future is conducting the DRIWE research project.
