Germany to start Car-2-Car and Car-to-Infrastructure trial

A co-operation agreement for the DIAMANT (Dynamic Information & Applications for Mobile safety with Adaptive Networks & Telematic infrastructure) Project was signed in August in the German town of Rüsselsheim.

DIAMANT, which forms part of the "traffic jam-free Hesse 2015" initiative, will explore Car-2-Car and Car-2-infrastructure technology.

During the next twelve months, Continental will work with Opel to equip a series of demonstration vehicles with communication modules and the corresponding control system software.

At the same time, an initial test section of roads in Germany's Rhine-Main region is will be equipped with the corresponding infrastructure, consisting of roadside units, which were developed and manufactured by Dambach. These transmitter/receiver units located by the side of the road are designed to provide a communications link between the central control point and individual motor vehicles.
