Smart mobility is backed by connectivity. And the future of mobility cannot be understood without the safe development, integration and validation of heterogenous access technologies that interact in a complex ecosystem, bridging the ICT and the automotive domains and, consequently, transforming the vehicle from a mode of transport into a highly relevant node in the digital world.
Applus IDIADA offers various services that back the industry’s needs in the context of connected and cooperative mobility, always taking into account its specific needs as well as the ones derived from other technologies such as vehicle automation.
We provide expertise and know-how during the entire development cycle: from the initial concept stages, through to implementation verification, validation and assessment (including XiL, test tracks and open road testing). IDIADA can also support you in your certification needs regarding connected services.
Connectivity is also part of regulations for new vehicle type approval. Applus+ IDIADA can support you in your testing and validation of eCALL, ERA GLONASS and UNECE AECS R.144 systems and help you to have them ready in time for official tests. If you have specific requirements on Radio Type Approval, we can also support and guide you through the process.
Applus+ IDIADA can also support you in the design and development of the digital infrastructure of your test facilities and proving ground, fulfilling your clients’ requirements based on Applus+ IDIADA’s own experience and methodologies.
Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are the integration of information and communications technology with transport infrastructure, vehicles and users. By sharing vital data, ITS allow people to get more information from transport networks, in greater safety and with less impact on the environment. Cooperative ITS (C-ITS) is the area of ITS that deals with real-time information exchange between road users and infrastructure, enabling advanced applications and services with a huge potential to increase comfort, mobility and safety.
Applus+ IDIADA offers development and small/large-scale deployment of C-ITS applications and services following customer requirements and objectives:
Applus+ IDIADA provides support in the integration of C-ITS applications into the customer’s service portfolio e.g. including cellular or V2X enabled services in current ITS platforms and frameworks.
Our own IDAPT control OBU for CAV applications integrates V2X radio with precise positioning, GPU computing and comprehensive I/O to facilitate the prototyping of C-ITS applications, with either standard or tailored messaging.
Applus+ IDIADA has also deployed state-of-the-art testing facilities to provide the necessary flexibility, robustness and safety for the thorough validation of connected and automated technologies at system and vehicle level. On top of our renowned test track capabilities we build the following digital infrastructure assets:
Applus IDIADA has implemented two new initiatives in the context of connected and automated vehicle validation:
Both proving grounds provide all the necessary connectivity assets to offer a flexible, configurable network for the definition and execution of connected vehicle tests and to support the data transmission and acquisition needs of your regular testing activities.
