BMW Group

With its brands BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motor­rad, the BMW Group is the worl­d’s lea­ding pre­mi­um manu­fac­tu­rer of auto­mo­bi­les and motor­cy­cles and pro­vi­der of pre­mi­um mobi­li­ty services.
BMW has firm­ly ancho­red eco­lo­gi­cal and social sus­taina­bi­li­ty along the enti­re value chain, com­pre­hen­si­ve pro­duct respon­si­bi­li­ty and a clear com­mit­ment to con­ser­ving resour­ces in its strategy.

The BMW Group is con­tri­bu­ting its many years of expe­ri­ence in vehic­le deve­lo­p­ment and in the rese­arch and deve­lo­p­ment of tech­ni­cal mobi­li­ty solu­ti­ons and ser­vices in urban are­as. In addi­ti­on to par­ti­ci­pa­ting in many work packa­ges of TEMPUS and pro­gramming vehicle-side soft­ware, the BMW Group is pro­vi­ding test vehicles.

Ebus­co is dedi­ca­ted to the deve­lo­p­ment, pro­duc­tion and mar­ke­ting of ful­ly elec­tric urban and regio­nal buses and the asso­cia­ted eco­sys­tem. The com­pany’s goal is to con­tri­bu­te to a bet­ter and healt­hi­er living envi­ron­ment by making sus­tainable, zero-emission public trans­port the stan­dard. Ebus­co’s buses are curr­ent­ly in ope­ra­ti­on in seve­ral Euro­pean count­ries, inclu­ding major cities such as Ams­ter­dam, Frank­furt and Munich.

For the TEMPUS pro­ject, Ebus­co is sup­p­ly­ing novel com­po­si­te buses that inte­gra­te state-of-the-art tech­no­lo­gy, enab­ling pla­too­ning bet­ween the­se buses.

Karls­ru­he Insti­tu­te of Tech­no­lo­gy (ITIV)

For many years, the Insti­tu­te for Infor­ma­ti­on Pro­ces­sing Tech­no­lo­gy (ITIV) has been con­duc­ting rese­arch in par­ti­cu­lar on the use of hete­ro­ge­neous, dyna­mi­cal­ly recon­fi­gura­ble hard­ware archi­tec­tures, subject-specific opti­mi­zed archi­tec­tures, pro­ce­du­res for par­ti­tio­ning decis­i­ons of hard­ware and soft­ware for the use of cor­re­spon­ding metho­do­lo­gy for rapid pro­to­ty­p­ing, and the test­ing of hard­ware modu­les. In this envi­ron­ment, the work of ITIV deals with the opti­miza­ti­on of sys­tems in the field of auto­mo­ti­ve and auto­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy, as well as security.

In the TEMPUS pro­ject, ITIV is respon­si­ble for the con­cep­tu­al design, imple­men­ta­ti­on, and eva­lua­ti­on of the dri­ving func­tions for an auto­ma­ted pla­too­ning of e‑buses in public trans­port. After gathe­ring the requi­re­ments, a sen­sor con­cept nee­ded for imple­men­ta­ti­on and the neces­sa­ry algo­rith­ms are deve­lo­ped. The deve­lo­ped pla­too­ning func­tion­a­li­ty will be demons­tra­ted and tested.

Free Sta­te of Bava­ria — Bava­ri­an Sta­te Con­s­truc­tion Admi­nis­tra­ti­on (LBD)

LBD is respon­si­ble for the plan­ning, con­s­truc­tion, ope­ra­ti­on and main­ten­an­ce of fede­ral and sta­te roads in the inter-regional road net­work, as well as for some of the dis­trict roads on behalf of the coun­ties. This includes, among other things, the ope­ra­ti­on of traf­fic signal sys­tems and a traf­fic signal con­trol center.

In the TEMPUS pro­ject, LBD is buil­ding up the part of the test field that is in the extra-urban area. In addi­ti­on to set­ting up the infra­struc­tu­re in the rural test area, it is also invol­ved in other work packa­ges. LBD coor­di­na­tes the set-up of the test field with the traf­fic signal manu­fac­tu­r­ers, the data purcha­sers and the Sta­te Con­s­truc­tion Office Frei­sing, which is respon­si­ble on site.

Landeshauptstadt München, Logo

City of Munich

The City of Munich (LHM) has the legal and poli­ti­cal obli­ga­ti­on, to design its trans­por­ta­ti­on sys­tem and pro­vi­de all citi­zens with the most sus­tainable mobi­li­ty opti­ons pos­si­ble. In doing so, it is also important to incor­po­ra­te rese­arch and inno­va­ti­on into the admi­nis­tra­ti­on, whe­re this makes sen­se, to con­ti­nu­al­ly renew and impro­ve the system.

In TEMPUS, LHM owns the pro­ject lead and the main respon­si­bi­li­ties are, for exam­p­le, infra­struc­tu­re equip­ment, digi­ta­liza­ti­on in the road space, sys­tem archi­tec­tu­re, and the role as a link bet­ween the indi­vi­du­al part­ners in all matters.

PTV Group

PTV Group

The PTV Group is known for future-oriented soft­ware tech­no­lo­gies in the are­as of traf­fic plan­ning, trans­port logi­stics and geo­mar­ke­ting, as well as con­sul­ting. Our goal: design a mobi­li­ty for the future that pre­ser­ves our livelihoods.

PTV’s main task in the TEMPUS pro­ject is to rese­arch gene­ral beha­vi­oral model approa­ches for impro­ved simu­la­ti­on of the inter­ac­tion bet­ween vul­nerable road users (pede­stri­ans, cyclists) and auto­ma­ted vehic­les and their demonstrator-like imple­men­ta­ti­on in the PTV Vis­sim simu­la­ti­on software.

Traf­fic Tech­no­lo­gy Ser­vices Euro­pe GmbH (TTS)

Traf­fic Tech­no­lo­gy Ser­vices Euro­pe (TTS) is a data ser­vice pro­vi­der for con­nec­ted and auto­ma­ted dri­ving. With the so-called Per­so­nal Signal Assistant, TTS is the first pro­vi­der to offer an area-wide V2X ser­vice in vehic­les. TTS stands for cloud-based ser­vices that gua­ran­tee ser­vice wit­hout expan­ding the roadsi­de infrastructure.

In Tem­pus, TTS brings to the frame­work and refe­rence archi­tec­tures requi­re­ments and imple­men­ta­ti­on pro­po­sals from the per­spec­ti­ve of a cen­tra­li­zed ser­vice pro­vi­der. A cen­tral traf­fic light pha­se ser­vice is being set up that spans all con­s­truc­tion load car­ri­ers. This is being inves­ti­ga­ted with regard to its effec­ti­ve­ness in saving fuel for com­bus­ti­on engi­nes and in exten­ding the ran­ge of elec­tric vehicles.

Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty of Dresden

The Chair of Traf­fic Psy­cho­lo­gy and the Chair of Inte­gra­ted Traf­fic Plan­ning and Road Traf­fic Engi­nee­ring are con­cer­ned with human expe­ri­ence and beha­vi­or as well as with safe­ty and qua­li­ty aspects in the traf­fic system.

In TEMPUS, TUD is inves­ti­ga­ting the accep­tance of, as well as the inter­ac­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on with, auto­ma­ted and net­work­ed vehic­les from the per­spec­ti­ve of dif­fe­rent social groups that par­ti­ci­pa­te in non-motorized traf­fic, inclu­ding child­ren, the elder­ly or peo­p­le with limi­t­ed mobi­li­ty. The goal is to gain insights into how to make traf­fic inclu­ding auto­ma­ted vehic­les safer, more flu­id and more plea­sant for vul­nerable road users. To this end, a wide varie­ty of methods will be used — from con­duc­ting focus groups and house­hold sur­veys, to labo­ra­to­ry expe­ri­ments and field observations.
