At the end of the Hy-Nets4all research project, more than just a method for developing cars is to be developed. The aim is to develop a holistic process with which functions for automated driving can be developed and secured for electrified vehicles. The energy requirements of the vehicles are also to be reduced, and the vehicle concepts are to be adapted to the charging infrastructure. As if that were not enough, the tool chain developed will enable cars to behave cooperatively in order to optimize traffic flows and reduce emissions.
In the predecessor project "Hy-Nets", which was successfully completed in January 2019, the participating companies and research institutions had already demonstrated that energy and thus emissions can be saved with the help of smart tool chains. In the Hy-Nets4all approach, simulation models and real components are to interact and be used for the further development and validation of driving functions. The journeys will be performed in the virtual representation of the city of Paderborn as a simulation environment. In addition to V2X communication, the existing or future charging infrastructure will be considered in the simulation.
