Previous work relating to the project
Siemens is working on mobility and logistics solutions for integrated traffic systems: from signalling and control systems to satellite-based mobility management, from adaptive traffic control and city toll systems to intermodal traffic management. In the field of electric mobility Siemens focuses on environmentally compatible power generation and distribution, efficient drive systems and charging stations and the intelligent integration of electric vehicles into overall traffic – with systems for driver information, parking guidance and traffic management. Siemens participates in several public research projects, pilot installations and field trials. Selected examples are IoT-A (Internet of Things Architecture, EU FP7), RegModHarz (BMWi – federal ministry for economic affairs and energy, BMU – federal environment ministry), Vehicle-to-X AASHT (American Association State Highway and Transportation) field trial in Palm Desert and Vehicle-to-X field trial DIAMANT (congestion-free Hesse 2015). Siemens is leader of the consortium for the pilot project “RACE” by the German federal ministry for economic affairs and energy, participates in the pilot project “econnect Germany” and designs and develops components and software for electric cars. Experiences in connecting the smart grid have been acquired, among other projects, in cooperation with the regional energy supplier Allgäuer Überlandwerk GmbH. In the project THESEUS/TEXO, Siemens worked on concepts for service marketplaces and the standardization of the service description language UDSL in line with W3C, for instance. In the field of standardized solutions Siemens is represented in committees of IEEE (802.11), OCIT, ETSI (CALM, TC ITS) and CEN.
