The C2A project aims to design, develop and implement an intelligent interconnection system between embedded hybrid equipment in transport vehicles. The project goal is to optimize and extend the use of embedded resources which will allow for the composition of new innovative services.
Scalability of embedded systems and IoT networks ⊕
Domaine: Transport & logistics ⊕
Various embedded equipment are becoming more and more numerous inside transport vehicles. Apart from mandatory devices such as the tachograph, various other equipment is available such as radio communication systems (GSM / GPRS), localisation devices (GPS), and a variety of miscellaneous tools and equipment for specific needs (data loggers, PC tablet, cameras, mobile phones, on-board computers, etc.). However the lack of interoperability results in duplication of services, redundancy of system features and sub-optimal utilization of available hardware and software resources.
The C2A project aims to develop a generic technology for interoperability (“intelligent communicating bus”) allowing communication and resource sharing between embedded devices in the vehicle.
The project had two main components:
The ICT companies can develop new features and services by interfacing their solutions to the C2A system and accessing an extended data set. They could also implement their own services on top of C2A architecture or integrate the C2A building blocks into their own solutions. Companies and operators of transport and logistics field can deploy these new services and benefit from a flexible system easily adaptable and extensible.
