But it is a location that can make a major contribution to the future of the automotive industry. Here, there are innovative companies that take on a variety of telematics tasks for the sector‘s corporations. Whether it is driver assistance systems or car2x technologies, companies such as Carmeq, Hella Aglaia, IAV and T-Systems are developing automotive software and hardware in the region. Precise navigation based on highly accurate maps and the latest traffic information is becoming more and more important. In the near future, it will make automated driving possible. Global players in the navigation sector such as Nokia Here and TomTom Traffic already offer a dedicated product portfolio. In the capital region, they are working to advance their technology on an ongoing basis. In the areas of fleet management and logistics, companies such as Bosch Software Innovations, Kienzle Argo, Masternaut and PSI Logistics are active. They not only supply car fleets with innovative, telematics-based solutions, but serve the freight transport sector as well. »Telematics services safeguard mobility in the cities of tomorrow. With its innovation-friendly residents, creative companies and proactive policies, the capital region is an inspiring environment for future-oriented projects at the interface of science and business.« Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Ortgiese Professorship for Transportation University of Applied Sciences Potsdam »Berlin provides IVU with outstanding conditions. The economic environment, the universities, the public transport companies and the diverse transport activity in the city are the basis for the innovation and inspiration we need for our highvalue products.« Martin Müller-Elschner CEO | IVU Traffic Technologies AG The German toll collection system is one of the country‘s largest telematics systems. Toll Collect, its operator, is headquartered in Berlin. Control and information technology for transport companies In public transport systems, modern control and information technology is essential for managing buses, trams, subways, commuter trains and other trains. This technology safeguards and increases the systems‘ attractiveness, reliability and economic efficiency. Internationally successful companies such as GSP Berlin, IVU Traffic Technologies, PSI Transcom and VA Berlin develop integrated system solutions that transport companies use to manage a number of tasks. The spectrum ranges from planning and scheduling drivers and vehicles, managing depots and using operating control systems based on real-time data to subscriptions and eTicket management and dynamic passenger information. This wealth of diversity underlines the capital region‘s role as an outstanding location for transport technology.
Important intelligent transport systems (ITS) location with 90 companies and 24 scientific institutions Location with internationally active corporations and successful medium-sized companies Innovative, dynamic ICT scene in the area of mobile applications Proving ground for the latest transport technologies with outstanding international visibility State-of-the-art traffic information and traffic management facilities Excellent research and education landscape due to the large number of scientific institutions Buses, trains or car sharing – Door2Door GmbH‘s Allryder app will find the optimal route Proving ground for multi-modal mobility The capital region is a designated proving ground for multi-modal mobility. It is able to look back at many years of pioneering demonstration projects. Innovative public-private partnership models such as Verkehrsinformationszentrale Berlin and current car2x projects for cooperative traffic management – Berlin- Brandenburg is spearheading this movement. Open data is a focus: it encourages the implementation of new ideas and products and provides stimulus to the dynamic IT scene. The region‘s transport association and transport companies are open to new ideas and partnerships. Companies appreciate the region‘s residents for their open mindedness when it comes to new forms of mobility, which is why they like to test their products in Berlin. Free-floating car sharing such as Car2Go, DriveNow and Multicity, in addition to a variety of electromobility projects, are also part of the picture. Without telematics, they would not be possible. And because Berlin-Brandenburg is Germany‘s capital region, these projects have high international visibility. »Traffic product development and state-of-the-art navigation – no wonder TomTom established a research and development center in Berlin. Based on the know-how in the capital, we can offer high quality products for traffic information and navigation to customers around the world.« Ralf-Peter Schäfer VP Traffic and Travel Information Product Unit TomTom Berlin »The fact that intelligent transport systems are particularly important for the capital region becomes especially apparent in the education of young engineers. With the only telematics degree program in Germany, Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau is definitely a pioneer« Prof. Dr. Ralf Vandenhouten Vice President Research and Enterprise Relations Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau Science and education Berlin-Brandenburg is also home to a lively science scene. At many of the region‘s universities, in particular Freie Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Potsdam University of Applied Sciences and Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin, researchers are examining a variety of fields, from autonomous driving to complex simulation environments and innovative methods of data analysis to research on new mobility concepts. Their work is often part of larger, international projects. As early as 2011, a driverless car developed at Freie Universität Berlin drove through the city under everyday traffic conditions. In the non-university area, the DLR‘s Institute of Transport Research and Institute of Transportation Systems and Fraunhofer FOKUS have special positions. At Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau, young engineers are being prepared for their careers in a special, telematics-oriented course of study.
