Converge - ITS Communication Architecture for Future Mobility

In the past, various German and European research projects have created several isolated solutions for an intelligent transportation system (ITS) infrastructure. As a matter of fact, many of these solutions are temporary. The backend architecture provided by these systems is mostly focused on supporting test and evaluation of topics in the context of vehicular based applications and communication. These solutions solve problems from more or less narrow fields and tend to be dependent of regional characteristics. The German research project “CONVERGE” (COmmunication Network VEhicle Road Global Extension) addresses a couple of those problems and therefore tries to create a distributed, trans-regional connected, provider independent, scalable, flexible and secure Car2X Systems Network architecture as input for standardization as well as a prototype for a rollout. The following article introduces the CONVERGE initiative and shows how it tries to reach this goal and why it is necessary for the ITS rollout.
