Informatik 5 shows results at aktiv final presentation in Mendig

The i5 CoCar team in Mendig
Sven Weber, Sandra Geisler, Dr. Christoph Quix

On June 23 and 24, Informatik 5 presented their work in the Cooperative Cars project (I5 CoCar project website) at the "aktiv" final results presentation in Mendig (, press release). "aktiv" is a research initiative funded by the BMBF which aims at the development of systems and solutions for driver assistance and traffic management for a safer and more efficient traffic in the future. In this project 28 partners from multiple industry branches, universities and public traffic management centers cooperated to achieve pioneering results.

In these two days interested people from automotive and telecommunications industry, as well as politics and universities had the opportunity to get informed about the work and research done so far in the three subprojects: Traffic Management, Active Safety and Cooperative Cars. The visitors experienced the innovations in live driving demonstrators and got additional information by static demonstrators and posters.

Members of the Model Management Group of the Informatik 5 chair showed their intermediate results regarding Data Stream Management in the application field of traffic jams and traffic jam tail end detection. In the demo they used a traffic simulation to generate Cooperative Cars messages in a traffic scenario and analyzed them by means of data stream mining to determine for a road section if it contains a traffic jam tail end.

Informatik 5 will continue the research in this area in the CoCarX project (CoCarX homepage) and investigate further challenges in management and mining of data streams.
